Encompass Healthcare Treats Kidney Infections in our Outpatient Center.
Kidney infections (pyelonephritis) are specific types of urinary tract infections (UTI) that generally begin in your urethra or bladder and travel up into your kidneys.
Kidney infections require prompt medical attention. If not treated properly, a kidney infection can permanently damage your kidneys or the bacteria can spread to your bloodstream and cause a life-threatening infection.
Kidney infection treatment usually includes antibiotics either in the form of strong orals or in most cases, I.V. antibiotics. That’s where Encompass HealthCare comes in.
Our patients enjoy large, comfortable chairs in our friendly, warm I.V. room. Parking is right outside of our disability-friendly front door and there are no stairs or elevators. Simply walk right in and be greeted by our friendly staff.
I.V.’s are administered quickly and then you are free to leave, go on with your day and only return for your next dose. It is our outpatient center that allows patients to get well while still enjoying the rest of their lives.
