Antibiotic review on the Ward
You are the F1 on the ward and are asked to re-site the cannula in a patient admitted with urosepsis. It is now Sunday afternoon and they have been in since Friday. The nursing staff say that the patient is reluctant to have a cannula inserted as it keeps catching on their clothes as they get around the ward.
What information do you need to know to decide what to do with the patient?
In order to get some prescribing resources out there we intend to publish a series of prescribing problems on the website. The problems will appear at least weekly with the "answers" appearing a couple of days later. We'll use the standard exam stationery available on the LSE, but also available below in case you haven't got access to the LSE.
