Home infusion of intravenous antibiotics has become a standard method of treating serious bacterial infections. When appropriate, home intravenous antibiotic therapy is provided under ongoing physician supervision. This allows patients to be at home and is less expensive than hospitalization. Samaritan Infectious Disease physicians provide medical supervision of patients on outpatient IV antibiotics.

Management of HIV, its complex therapies and complications is provided by Samaritan Infectious Disease physicians. Care is provided in a continuing fashion in cooperation with primary care physicians and other providers of HIV medical care in the region. 

Case management and social service support are crucial aspects of HIV care. Guidance is provided to assist patients through the complex medical, emotional and financial aspects of living with HIV. This care is provided by a cooperative arrangement with case managers from local county health departments. 

Complex medical regimens and clinical illness can interfere with proper nutrition. Professional nutrition advice is very important and nutritional support is available through a professional dietitian. 

For those dealing with addiction or substance abuse, counseling is available.

For Health Providers

Samaritan Infectious Disease physicians are available to provide antibiotic formulary advice to affiliate hospital pharmacies. In addition, antibiotic stewardship efforts may be initiated in the future to attempt to ensure rational, cost-effective use of antimicrobials and in efforts to limit the development of antimicrobial resistance. 

Physicians also closely monitor local antibiotic susceptibility data in order to inform providers of trends in antibiotic susceptibility. Such data are crucial for providers to make informed choices in prescribing antibiotics.
