nurse and patient infusion center

At TwelveStone Infusion Centers, we understand that our infusion nurses’ dedication, care, and upbeat personality significantly influence the patient’s journey through infusion treatment. Their unwavering commitment reassures our patients and their families of the quality of care they can expect.

Skilled infusion nurses have several critical responsibilities related to administering intravenous (IV) medications, fluids, and blood products to patients. These include initiating and maintaining IV access lines such as peripheral IVs, midlines, PICCs (peripherally inserted central catheters) and central lines and performing routine dressing changes. Nurses also closely monitor their patients during infusions, assessing for adverse reactions and managing complications.

At TwelveStone infusion nurses are not just caregivers; they are integral members of each patient’s healthcare team. Their collaboration and communication with physicians, pharmacists, and other clinicians ensure a comprehensive and coordinated approach to the patient’s infusion therapy, instilling confidence in the care provided.

Infusion nurses also work with patients and their families to educate them on the infusion treatment plan, potential side effects, line care, and signs of infection.

Highly Skilled, Highly Educated

Administering IV medications demands an unwavering commitment to precision, ensuring accurate dosages and proper infusion techniques. That’s why TwelveStone infusion nurses continuously attend training and classes to remain current with ever-evolving technologies, products, and practices.

TwelveStone infusion nurses have a nursing degree from an accredited nursing program and an active Registered Nurse (RN) license. Furthermore, they must obtain their Certified Registered Nurse Infusion (CRNI) credential, which requires 1,600 hours of infusion therapy experience in the last two years. Lastly, they must follow the Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice published by the Infusion Nurses Society (INS).

Compassionate Care

TwelveStone infusion nurses understand that they often work with patients who are ill or injured and may be anxious or distressed. Our nurses are a calming presence who tailor their approach to meet the unique needs of diverse patient populations, from pediatric cases requiring delicate care to elderly patients with complex or multiple medical conditions. Working under often stressful situations can be emotionally taxing. Yet, our nurses’ high level of technical expertise and precision calms patients to ensure their safety and the success of the infusion therapy.

Our nurses are also trained to adapt their infusion administration methods to provide consistent, high-quality care across various care environments for patients who choose to have their infusion therapies administered at their homes.

The care provided by our infusion nurses does not stop after the infusion has started. Infusion therapy poses risks of infection, infiltration, and adverse reactions. Therefore, our nurses maintain vigilant monitoring to promptly identify and address any complications that may arise, such as phlebitis or life-threatening conditions like sepsis from central line-associated bloodstream infections.

Credentialed, caring, and compassionate—these three words only begin to describe TwelveStone Infusion Center’s dedicated infusion nurses. Their commitment to our patients and their families is responsible for our reputation for delivering outstanding care.
