Video: Our Nurses Are Patients' Lifelines

May 8, 2019

As we celebrate National Nurses Week, Daniel Coppola, one of Accredo’s home infusion nurses, shares how he and the Accredo team care for patients with critical, complex conditions.

This week, we celebrate nurses -  who consistently receive the highest ranking  among professions for honesty and ethical standards. Included in the more than 4 million registered nurses across the U.S. is our Accredo team of 550 home infusion nurses.

These field nurses visit patients - at home, work, or school - to administer specialty medications for some of the most complex disease states, such as pulmonary arterial hypertension and immune disorders.

Each of these nurses has extensive infusion experience and in-depth knowledge of their patients’ complex disease state. This level of clinical specialization provides the basis for the extensive care coordination necessary to treat these patients.

We’ll Be a Team

“We’ll be a team.” These are the words of Daniel Coppola, one of Accredo’s home infusion nurses, who cares for patients living with a complex, and often rare, condition. These health conditions are life threatening and they disrupt the lives of patients, as well as their families.  Tina, who has pulmonary arterial hypertension, is one of Daniel’s patients, living life to the fullest, thanks to Daniel and Accredo.
