Many patients admitted to hospital or receiving care in other settings, including their own homes, are recipients of one or more infusion therapies” Dean (2017).

Abstract:

Many patients admitted to hospital or receiving care in other settings, including their own homes, are recipients of one or more infusion therapies. Total parenteral nutrition, chemotherapy, parenteral antimicrobial therapy, pain relief and other infusion therapies are increasingly delivered in community settings. While the move away from hospital helps meet patients’ lifestyles and clinical needs, it can have implications for patient care and safety.
