Brief Answer:
Active infection needs to be controlled.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The infection in her wound is persistent and since there is a daily discharge of yellowish green color it means higher antibiotics like tazobactaum and piperacillin are needed to control the infection. The best antibiotic can be selected after a culture sensitivity report.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
