Your Patients Deserve Excellent Care

Treating patients for hemophilia and bleeding disorders in hospitals can cause several issues. Patients feel more stressed when having to travel into the hospital to receive their treatments. 

Treatment in hospital means time away from their relaxing home environment and often away from family and friends. Organizing the travel can cause even more stress and disruption for the patient. 

Not only that, but if they need treatment quickly, travelling into the hospital can cause serious bleeding. Whereas, if they can be treated at home, the patient can be treated quicker, resulting in less bleeding and side effects. 

By treating patients in their own home, Metroplex Vital Care will help take the strain away from hospitals. Freeing up vital beds, time and resources that can be directed elsewhere.

Top Quality Care with the Comforts of Home

This is why at Metroplex Vital Care, we’re so passionate about treating our patients at home. It helps us provide each patient with professional, caring, one to one infusions in a calm and relaxed environment.

When our patients are in the comfort of their own home, with their loved ones nearby, they feel more relaxed. They enjoy the convenience and comfort of home treatment and their loved ones appreciate that they can be on hand to provide help and assurance.

 Our dedicated, professional nurses provide the individual care and treatment that is so vital to each patient. By clearly and concisely talking each patient through their treatment and how to administer it themselves, Metroplex encourages them to become more independent. 

This helps to build our patient’s confidence and self-esteem. And crucially, it means that in the event of an emergency, they will be able to deal with it.
