A team approach to pain control...
Since 1989, Home Care I.V. of Bend has been a leading advocate for patients in the appropriate management of acute and chronic pain due to injury, surgery and end-stage cancer. Our clinical staff are acknowledged experts in pain management who recognize the significant negative impact of chronic pain on the quality of life and the end of life stage of a terminal illness. Collaborating with patients, their healthcare providers and caregivers enables our expert pharmacists and nurses to monitor treatment effectiveness and recommend changes based on their extensive clinical knowledge and experience.
Pain management therapies are most commony provided using a small, computerized infusion pump. The portable size and programming versatility allow a wide range of treatment options without the intrusiveness of large, pole mounted equipment. Our nurses provide the learning to both patients and caregivers for safe and effective care.
In certain cases, chronic pain is managed with surgically implanted infusion pumps. Using precision equipment and electronics, our specially trained nurses fill and program the implanted pump. Home Care I.V. of Bend is the only home infusion facility in the region with the equipment, training and experience required to safely and effectively manage these devices.
