Thanks for posting your query. However, it is incomplete. I do not understand what the doctors mean by avoiding a kidney infection. It mostly seems like they want to prevent septicemia.

She requires aggressive treatment with potent antibiotics now. It is better for her to be hospitalized so that any severe infection can be taken care of.

She would not die; she will get well soon.

Take care.
