Hello all. I am trying to figure out why my pt was given pantoprazole. He is in the hospital for Clostridium difficile infection as well as an AKI. He has CKD, diabetes, HTN, and no hx of ulcers other than one that had a hard time healing on his leg. I have read articles about how pantoprazole has actually been linked to causing AKIs and that it can make patients more susceptible to C. diff infections.So am I missing something? Why is he taking it?
