Certain patients may be able to receive their NAGLAZYME® (galsulfase) infusions at home. With a home infusion, NAGLAZYME is shipped to the patient’s home and a nurse comes to the home to administer the treatment and monitor the patient.
The right option for your patient?
Home infusions may not be appropriate in all cases. Important considerations include:
- Individual circumstances
- Ability to tolerate home treatment
For those who qualify, success requires vigilance both on the part of the healthcare team and the patient to ensure that:
- The NAGLAZYME shipped to their home is properly stored in the refrigerator before use
- Patients understand that they need to inform the home infusion nurse of any side effects experienced during the infusion
Help patients prepare
You can help patients prepare for NAGLAZYME home infusions by:
- Informing them of the proper ways to handle the NAGLAZYME that is shipped to their home
- Educating them on what to expect during an infusion
- Informing them that the nurse may wait for a short period of time after removing the IV line just to ensure that there are no delayed reactions
- Working closely with the home infusion agency to ensure a smooth transition
