Hello,

A persistent low grade fever can be due to any infection most commonly tubercular or malignancy.

It is better to get your blood culture done to know what nosocomial infection have been developed and treat accordingly with antibiotics.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Archana
