I work with immunocompromised renal pts so I dole out vanco, gent, Tobra like its water. However, I always point out prior to giving oral antibiotics that super bugs are a reality, so frequent use of antibiotics isn't a good practice. I advise my pts who I think have more of a viral picture that frequent handwashing, use of Tylenol and/ibuprofen for achiness, Claritin, robitussin for other symptoms are usually my first line of defense.
