MHC will soon be a site for the Community IV Program (CIVP).
The CIVP program is a Home Care service for people who need antibiotics intravenously (IV/by vein) in a clinic setting. The program provides treatment and support through a health-care team of nurses, pharmacists, infectious disease doctors and support staff.
CIVP is for people who:
- Are referred by a hospital inpatient unit, emergency department, Urgent Care or through ID clinics
- Have an infection that requires IV antibiotic treatment
- Are well enough to be managed in the community
- Have a stable IV line that can be managed in the community
