How effective is Levaquin in managing bladder and blood infection?
Hello dear. She can stay at home.
I have gone through the details.
Your doctor has chosen oral levofloxacin depending upon the sensitivity results of the bacterial culture. As levofloxacin is sensitive, it must eradicate the bacteria and hence there is no need for isolation and it will work for sure. Just apply universal precautions of safe hand washing and hygiene.
However, a point of concern. If this bacteria has grown in culture of blood, then patient must be admitted in the hospital till the time he is infection free, as blood infections are sometimes serious in nature for the patient.
Thanks and regards
Do I have to worry about contamination transmission? I have also been in a hospital with asthma and pneumonia....am I endangered as one of her caretakers?
Hello dear. I donot think there is any risk to you.
Hello dear. I do not think there is any risk to you. PAtient and you must follow hand hygiene and general hygiene. Frequent hand hygiene is must. PAtient's towel and clothes can be seperated at the most.
