Discharge And Home Healthcare Guidelines

Most children will be managed at home. Caregivers need to understand the rationale for all medications. If the child has a viral infection, explain to the parents why an antibiotic is not indicated. If the child has a bacterial infection, make sure the parents understand the importance of taking the entire prescription and to report new onset of symptoms if they occur. Reassure parents that frequent infections are not unusual, but if the infections persist, they need to report them to a healthcare provider.
