Intravenous Medications Wound Care

Memorial Clinical Associates is a full-service primary care health practice serving the Memorial, Katy and Spring Branch Communities. We offer quality care in a variety of medical fields.

We provide in-depth consultations, evaluations and treatment plans with patients. The following are services we provide in our Infusion suite:




Intravenous Medications

At Memorial Clinical Associates we administer intravenous medications (IV) in our infusion suite. Intravenous medication is given directly into a patient's vein and needs to be monitored by a nurse or physician for the right dosage, timing, and drug.

Various methods are used depending on the patient’s condition or medication. The primary purpose of giving IV medications is to initiate an immediate response to the medicine. It is one of the fastest ways to deliver medication. The drug is immediately available to the body and the amount is easier to control or maintain levels in the blood for therapeutic response. Using an IV to receive medication is often used because the digestive enzymes destroy the drug; it is poorly absorbed by the tissue, or is painful and irritating when given by regular injection.

Wound Care

Millions of Americans suffer from chronic wounds caused by diabetes and other vascular disorders, traumatic injuries, pressure sores, surgeries and other conditions that slow down the body’s healing process.

Healing is a response to gentle and proper care to minimize infection and scarring. At Memorial Clinical Associates we can provide a full range of treatments for wounds like diabetic ulcerations, traumatic wounds, surgical wounds, radiation induced tissue injuries, and all types of acute and chronic non-healing wounds. When a person has wound of this king the first step is removing contaminants in and around the wound. At times “debridement” is necessary to remove dead tissue around the wound. Once it is cleaned and prepared to prevent infection your comprehensive wound care team will perform evaluations and create a specific plan for your needs.

If you or a loved one suffers from chronic or non-healing wounds, click here and contact us today!

If you get a cut or wound at home clean the wound with antibacterial soap and stop the bleeding with a bandage. Antibacterial should be used, but if you are diabetic or have circulatory problems avoid strong antiseptics like hydrogen peroxide or Betadine, which can interfere with healing.

Once bleeding stops, keep the wound semi-moist using products like petroleum jelly. Lastly, if you don’t see signs of healing after four weeks, you may need to seek medical attention. Please contact MCA for more information or questions about wound care services.
