Giving injections at home

Injections should be given exclusively by licensed medical personnel and at the doses and time intervals specified by the treatment.

After receiving the injection, the nurse stays with the patient so that she can react in a timely manner if there is a reaction to the drug.

Giving injections at home frees you from fear

Although giving injections is very short-lived, many are associated with pain. This fear, usually, has existed since childhood, and is caused by the discomfort that accompanied the child during the injection or, in turn, the intimidation of the parents as a measure of punishment.

Thanks to the pleasant, well-known atmosphere of your own home, the patient is relaxed. The fear and nervousness of the injection are eliminated.

Given that the injections are given at home, the nurse has plenty of time to fully devote to the patient, and if necessary to help them with relaxation techniques, which is especially significant for very timid patients.

Also, expertise and experience guarantee that you will not feel pain at the sting, but relief immediately after receiving treatment.
