The monoclonal antibody infusion used to treat COVID-19 in high risk patients is now available through Lake Charles Memorial Home Health. Patients who qualify can receive the infusion in the convenience of their home. This service is currently offered Monday through Friday.

Patients will need to meet a qualification of being high-risk such as age, pregnancy and/or a chronic health condition. If they do qualify, a registered nurse will come to their home, administer the infusion and monitor the patient for one hour post infusion.

Patients do not need to meet home health criteria, nor will they be admitted to home health services. Any insurance policy will be accepted, and there will be no out-of-pocket expenses for the patient.

Patients are encouraged to discuss this option with their physician once they receive a COVID-19 diagnosis. They can call 337.494.6444 for more information and assistance in getting an order from their physician. Physicians can fax an order form, positive COVID-19 diagnosis and demographics to 337.494.6451.
