Infusion treatments close to home save much time


Infusion treatments available locally at Veterans Memorial Hospital ... Pictured above, Judy Lonning of Waukon with Brooke Weighner, RN, and below, Mary Hogan of Lansing with Andi Goltz, RN. Both patients were able to have infusion treatments at Veterans Memorial Hospital (VMH) as a more convenient option, rather than traveling out of the area to a larger medical facility. Submitted photos.

Infusion Treatments, also called IV Therapy, are conveniently offered locally at Veterans Memorial Hospital, saving patients numerous, tiring trips out of town for the same service. Infusion therapy is performed when medications or fluids cannot be taken by mouth or a stronger version of this medication is needed. These fluids or medications are delivered directly into the body through a vein with an IV. Infusions and treatments can be given as often as twice per day or as seldom as a one-time dose.

The Veterans Memorial Hospital Infusion and Treatment Center offers a wide variety of outpatient infusion services, close to home.  Dressing changes, blood transfusions, medications and much more is offered locally by skilled  registered nurses. Their goal is to offer these well organized and comfortable treatment plans to save patients and their family members time and energy.

Word for Word 7/21/21

Rev. Kim Gates
Rev. Kim Gates

This article “came to me” in bits-n-pieces so if it seems disjointed that’s probably why. But mainly it is about what love is/what it does and what it is not/does not.  

Love – what I see that it does: Love steps aside differences and focuses on common ground; it focuses on others (God being first and foremost), not the self. From 1st Corinthians 13, often referred to as the “Love Chapter,” love is: patient, kind, it keeps no record of wrongs; it always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

What love does not do: force itself on anyone nor demand its own way. And again from 1st Corinthians: [Love] does not envy, it is not proud, it does not boast; it does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered; Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth; and finally: Love never fails.
