outpatient and Infusion Services

 

INFUSION SERVICES

Infusion Services at SCCH provide outpatient care for patients requiring blood transfusions, or IV therapies, such as IV antibiotic treatments ordered as a series. Physicians may also order one-time treatments for patients including narcotic administration, enemas, or Foley catheter placement.

Infusion cubicles are equipped with comfortable, reclining chairs and flat screen televisions. Or, hospital beds are available to accommodate all infusion patients.

Because we recognize the importance of timely, flexible treatment so that infusion patients can return to normal activities as quickly as possible, staff is available for evening and weekend appointments.

For blood transfusions, arrangements will be made for blood typing prior to transfusion insuring that the appropriate blood type is available at the time of treatment. 

SCCH’s knowledgeable medical and nursing staff is available at (812) 268-4311, ext. 2264 prior to infusion to answer questions and address concerns.

OUTPATIENT SURGERY SERVICES

Prior to surgery,  if labs, EKG, chest x-ray or other testing is ordered, we would like you to come to the hospital and complete the testing process
