What is Injection?
Infusions make up the majority of what our nurses do in the infusion rooms, but they also do injections and PICC (Peripherally inserted central catheter) line dressing changes. We also offer our infusions for patients not of Holzer. These providers simply need to acquire the prior authorization for the infusion, then fax the order to our infusion coordinator at 740-446-5284.
