Case Study Group 1

Patient HH is a 68-year-old male with a history of COPD, HTN, and diabetes, which makes him susceptible to respiratory infections like community acquired pneumonia (CAP) (Pillai, Sabnis, Biswas, 2019).  It appears antibiotic therapy has improved patient HH’s condition because he requires less oxygen.  The problem is that he is not tolerating a diet and cannot be started on PO antibiotics. According to Cao et al. (2017), the patient does not meet discharge criteria until he is tolerating PO meds. It is important to note that he is allergic to penicillin and close monitoring of his kidney function and labs is indicated because of his age and medical history.

Get Started

Patient treatment will include a respiratory quinolone Levaquin. The previous antibiotics will be discontinued. The starting dose would be 750mg IV q24 for 5 days.  Cao et al. (2017), believe this treatment is part of the initial treatment for CAP in patients older than 65 years with comorbidities. This treatment is also recommended by the Infectious Disease Society of America/American Thoracic Society and has shown clinical improvement in elderly patients (National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, 2014). If patient tolerates PO, Levaquin can be administered PO. It is important to note, that if the etiology of CAP is known, targeted therapies can be given depending on susceptibility testing (Cao et al., 2017).


Education Strategy

It is crucial to print out all information about the new treatment, including expected side effects, adverse effects, length of treatment, and dosages.  The patient should be able to have the information printed if certain information is forgotten.  It is as important to include a family member in the teaching and explain consequences of not adhering to prescribed meds.
