Our team of highly trained nurses and pharmacists is here to help you provide the highest quality of care for your intrathecal pump patients.

DrugPlus Select

Pentec Health employs highly-trained nurses capable of managing all Intrathecal Pump models and refilling pumps in the patient’s environment. Each Pentec Health nurse is trained to the highest standards of intrathecal pump management, including routine, emergency and troubleshooting of all types of intrathecal pumps. Our nurses are trained through our Intrathecal Nurse Training Program which, since 2014, is the ONLY training program accredited by the ANCC. Through this program we deploy a trained RN to the patient’s home with medications to fill the pump. While there, they examine the patient and send notes, assessments and a telemetry back to your office within 48 hours. The nurse is available to your patients on-call 24/7/365 for any pump-related issues. In addition, an expert pharmacist is also available 24/7/365 to consult with you, monitor medication and provide follow-ups.
