Southern Medical Therapies - Antibiotics
Long-term intravenous or intramuscular antibiotics can frequently be administered in the home. Disposable elastomeric pumps are user-friendly and allow patients to participate in their own care. Antibiotics can be administered via peripheral, midline and central venous access devices. Patient satisfaction and cost savings are clear advantages for home administration.
Osteomyeolitis, endocarditis, septicemia and urinary tract infections are just a few of the diagnoses that are frequently treated in the home. Alabama Medicaid and private insurance provide liberal coverage while Medicare is much more restrictive. Southern Medical is available to patients and referral sources 24 hours a day.
