As with all relatively new health treatments, there are questions about safety and ethics. However, when it comes to elective hydration procedures, RenewIV is the front runner in the Tampa Bay area for providing safe, regulated treatments and is widely trusted by local physicians and members of the medical community.
As the use of elective wellness and hydration for both personal maintenance and preventative measures continues to grow, there seems to be some confusion and controversy about this particular industry of therapy.
Every state has their own regulations regarding elective hydration therapy and who can administer treatment. In the state of Florida specifically there are strict laws in place about who can give IVs. For instance, only those qualified to facilitate or prescribe the treatment are M.Ds or D.Os. A nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant may also make decisions regarding the treatment while those not qualified to do so include chiropractors and those with a PhD.
A lot of grey area comes from the fact that although elective hydration is a medical procedure, it is still a retail business. It’s similar to laser hair removal in that it’s clinical and takes place in a medical office, but is a service that is sold to people and as with any new business with medical benefits there is sure to be ambiguity.
Some ways to ensure that the treatment you are receiving is both safe and appropriately regulated is to check the price tag. Treatment should be expensive because the technical equipment and expertise is costly. If you’re receiving elective hydration therapy and it’s cheap, it should be seen as a red flag.
The facilities should be licensed as a clinic or a doctor’s office and a physician must oversee the service. If it’s not, then it’s probably a good sign that the therapy provider is not reputable.
The team at RenewIV understands the complications of entering the new business market and are devoted to ensuring their patients optimal and safe options for elective hydration therapy. With members of the medical community in Tampa choosing RenewIV for their personal use, it’s clear that the services they offer are the most reputable and trusted in the area.
