More with Dr. Mahoney: Monica V. Mahoney shares an anti-microbial stewardship #StewardTip:
"Antimicrobial stewardship doesn't just end with the workday! It extends well beyond into every day practice. We can have a profound impact by educating our family and friends to avoid unnecessary antibiotics in everyday, casual conversation. Especially now, we can educate that antibiotics have no role in viral infections. Just the other day, I talked my brother out of filling a levofloxacin prescription for the tail end of the flu, because he still 'wasn't better.' A few more days of rest and he was on his way to recovery, sans antibiotic."
