What Is Mobile IV Therapy?

February 3rd, 2022 by

Mobile IV therapy connects patients with highly valuable intravenous drop therapies in their homes, eliminating the often difficult — and sometimes impossible — trip to the hospital for treatment.

Traditionally, IV therapy has been supported only in hospital or clinic settings, limiting accessibility for patients who could greatly benefit from the therapy.

Thankfully, IV mobile therapy is increasingly more common as patients seek out the ability to get the care they need at home.

What Is Mobile IV Therapy?

IV mobile therapy provides the benefits of an intravenous drip infusion in the privacy and comfort of the patient’s home.

Just as a patient would receive in the hospital, the IV is set up to deliver fluids directly into the bloodstream.

Everything from hydration treatments to vitamin and nutrient delivery can be delivered via mobile IV therapy, helping patients to get lifesaving treatment as well as treatments designed to improve overall health and wellness.

What Is Advanced Mobile IV Therapy?

Advanced mobile IV therapy may go beyond the basics of hydration and vitamin/nutrient infusions, providing more intensive treatments delivered by IV to the home setting.

For example, chemotherapy or blood transfusions may be classified as advanced mobile IV therapy treatments since they will typically require a certified medical provider to deliver these specific treatments.

How Do I Start a Mobile IV Therapy Business?

Starting a mobile IV therapy business as a standalone or as an add-on to a current home care business is a very simple process once you have the right paperwork, credentials, and tools in hand to make sure the business is in compliance with local, state, and federal regulations.

You would expect that first responders like Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) would be able to start lifesaving IV lines on their own since they are the life support in between an incident and the emergency room. Contrary to what one might think is an “appropriate” ability or function of emergency personnel, under Florida law, EMTs are actually not permitted to place their IV lines on their own outside of an emergency situation. While there might be some very narrow exceptions, the general rule is clear in its prohibition. read more
