    Default IV Infusion

    The best thing to do would be to clarify with the physicain as to why he ordered the infusion. There has to be a reason for it. Ask for additional signs/symptoms and if there is a diagnosis such as cancer or some type of home health antibiotic therapy the patient is having.
