We are a Anesthesia led practice. This allows for greater diversity of co-morbid diagnoses and increased safety for the clients. We keep a full complement of Anesthesia/ACLS equipment and medications and our providers are experienced professionals.
Each client is medically evaluated and can most often be managed with medications during the infusions. If a medication change is needed in order to move forward with treatment. We prefer to discuss the challenges with the prescribing provider and offer alternative medication options that are evidence based. Collaboration is always our preference and in the case where the provider does not feel that a medication change is appropriate, we would defer to the ongoing clinician. Patient safety is our first priority. Always.
