IV Infusions, check your facts

Compliance of medical products and treatments is a constant challenge, because ‘Drip bars’ and fly-by-night practices are popping up everywhere, destroying the reputation of this industry.

IV Infusions have scheduled drugs and consist of a fluid which is pumped directly into the bloodstream. Here is a checklist to ensure your safety at all times.


Health and Safety Checklist

1. A full medical examination is required prior to a drip. IV Infusions are not a ‘one size fits all’. The drip needs to be a personal prescription, not a generic pre-made solution. A doctor is to be on site during your session. The doctor should also have an ACLS Or Advanced Cardiac Life Support certificate and training in case of an emergency.

2. The drip needs to be a personal prescription not a generic. A doctor should be on site during your session. The doctor should also have an ACLS Or Advanced Cardiac Life Support certificate and training. Also required is life support equipment in case of an emergency.

3. Drips must be administered by a qualified and registered nurse or doctor.

4. Know the exact compound of vitamins in your infusion, most of all full disclosure of the content of the drip is to be available to you, at all times.

5. Drips need to be produced in a sterile compounding laboratory. Make it a point to know the source of your drip. Drips need to be custom manufactured for you as an individual, not pre-made, therefore imported drips are to be legal and have the required MCC (Medical Control Council) certificate.

6. Keep it sterile. All items must be sealed and sterile for your treatment. Needles, IV lines, and saline bags are all considered hazardous. Disposal of sharps is also to be done by a professional medical disposal company.

7. In addition invoicing and administering must be done by medical practices only.


In conclusion when it comes to your health wisdom and safety should not be a choice.

    Good Day
    I had an IV infusion at another clinic and a few days later had a kidney infection. Is this related. The pain was most excruciating. It was administered by a GP.

      Hi Shannon

      I am sorry to hear that you had a kidney infection those are awfully painful. I am not sure whether the two are connected? You would need to follow up with the clinic you went to with regards to where their IV Infusions are manufactured and whether they are compliant with the rules as set out by the Medicine Controls Council.

      This is not something I have heard of before within our business but then all clients are given a full health assessment and screening by one of our doctors prior to treatment and all IV’S are administered by either a doctor or nurse at our clinics?

      Let me know if I can assist further.
