Outpatient infusion therapy

The Outpatient Infusion Room of Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center offers high-quality, safe and compassionate care for those receiving infusion services. Besides the chairside nurse that’s with the patient at all times, we ensure all patients are treated in a safe and timely manner without a delay in service and care because we understand that patients want to get back to their daily lives quickly.

What is infusion therapy?

Infusion therapy is when a patient is given medication through a needle or a catheter, mainly because their condition is too advanced to be treated effectively with periodic oral or injectable medication, because they can’t eat anything or because their stomach acids would destroy any medication taken orally.

Many conditions and diseases are treated through infusion therapy, including:

  • Cancer
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Gastrointestinal tract diseases
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Certain forms of arthritis
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Immune deficiency disorders
  • Dehydration from nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
