Amanda Dux: An Infusion Nurse’s Journey as an Ascension at Home Patient

Amanda Dux Interview

Amanda Dux, a home infusion Registered Nurse (RN) and a valued member of the Ascension at Home team, recently experienced our services as a patient. When Amanda’s primary physician recommended infusion therapy to treat her multiple sclerosis (MS), the choice was clear: opt for Ascension at Home’s exceptional care. It all boiled down to her firsthand experience as an infusion RN and her deep-rooted trust in the team’s commitment to patient well-being. 

“It was really important to me to have the benefits that my patients have access to so that I could speak a little bit more to how it is with new patients,” Amanda explains. Her perspective as both a caregiver and now a patient would provide invaluable insights into the infusion process.

It’s a point she highlights from her own experience—the seamless coordination of insurance authorizations and scheduling that significantly eased her concerns as a patient.

“At a big infusion center, you’re at the mercy of when they can put you in a chair,” Amanda says, pointing out the lengthy process she experienced with other infusion facilities. “With Ascension at Home, I didn’t have to do any of that. They walked me through everything, and they took care of me.”

Amanda says this approach fosters independence where she can continue with daily routines, work and family life, while receiving the care she needs. This empowerment not only aids in her recovery but also boosts her overall well-being. 

“I was able to just say, ‘Okay, I can relax and be in my own home,’” Amanda explains. “And it was exactly what I wanted and what I want my patients to experience.”
