The Benefits of IV Therapy

Intravenous (IV) therapy is a treatment used to deliver fluid into a patient’s veins through an IV drip. IV therapy is one of the quickest and most effective ways to administer medication, nutrients and fluids the body needs directly into the bloodstream. 


Do Skilled Nursing Facilities Offer IV Therapy?

Yes! Our Liberty Healthcare and Rehabilitation Services skilled nurses at all of our locations are trained and certified to administer IV therapy to residents who need this type of treatment. They will explain how it works, help residents feel as comfortable as possible during treatment and ensure patient safety by monitoring the entire process.


Who needs IV Therapy?

IV therapy is an ideal treatment option for individuals with severe infections, nutritional deficiencies or immune diseases. The most common uses for IV therapy include administering antibiotics, providing necessary nutrients and assisting with rehydration. Our skilled nurses use IV therapy for residents who cannot swallow or digest food, water or medicine. IV therapy is also utilized when residents become dehydrated because they cannot keep water or food down. It allows our skilled nurses to replace fluids and electrolytes to maintain a proper and healthy balance. If a resident cannot take medication orally, in some emergency cases, IV therapy can even be a life saver.
