 Assessment/Interventions

  • Assess for hypersensitivity reaction or previous penicillin allergy.
  • Assess renal function prior to starting therapy.
  • Obtain specimens for culture and sensitivity before beginning therapy and periodically during treatment.
  • Monitor for signs of infection, especially fever, and for positive response to antibiotic therapy.
  • Assess for signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis. Have resuscitation equipment available.
  • Assess for signs of superinfection, such as vaginitis or stomatitis.
  • Assess for severe diarrhea with blood or pus, which may be symptom of pseudomembranous colitis. Symptoms may occur after antibiotic treatment is discontinued.

  Seizures

 Patient/Family Education

  • Inform diabetic patients that oral suspension contains 1 gm sucrose/teaspoon of suspension.

  • Notify healthcare provider if patient has penicillin allergy or cephalosporin allergy.
  • Notify healthcare provider of nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, especially if severe or contains blood, mucus or pus.
  • Remind diabetic patient to use an enzyme-based test for urine glucose or may otherwise obtain a false-positive result.
