PHS Presents on Home Care Infusion at Local APHON Chapter Meeting
PHS was thrilled to be invited to present at the local APHON chapter meeting on September 25th, in Minneapolis. Many nurses involved in APHON work in the hospital or clinic setting so PHS was excited to be able to expose more nurses to the wonderful world of homecare.
PHS Infusion Nurse and Nurse Educator Jill Wall, RN, BSN, CRNI, presented on infusion therapy in the homecare setting. She covered PHS’s process for patient intake, education of family and nurses and all that PHS does to ensure our patients stay safe and thrive at home. She also briefly reviewed one of PHS’s clinical outcomes, our central line associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) rate. The rate of catheter infections in PHS patients is extremely low, even though many PHS patients are chronically ill and receive complex catheter treatments from PHS.
