Slide8Copyright © 2014  Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Question Question • Is the following statement true or false? • Fluoroquinolones are the primary class of bactericidal drugs affecting the bacterial cell by interfering with the synthesis of RNA.

Slide9Copyright © 2014  Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Answer Answer • False • Fluoroquinolones are the primary class of bactericidal drugs affecting the bacterial cell by interfering with the synthesis of DNA. These drugs are used to treat a wide range of both gram-negative and gram-positive microorganisms.

Slide10Copyright © 2014  Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Nursing Process: Assessment Nursing Process: Assessment • Preadministration assessment: – Take and record vital signs and identify symptoms and history of drug allergies – Primary health care provider may order: • Culture and sensitivity: To be done before first dose of the drug is given • Renal and hepatic function tests; CBC; urinalysis

Slide11Copyright © 2014  Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Nursing Process: Assessment (cont.) Nursing Process: Assessment (cont.) • Ongoing assessment: – Monitor patient’s vital signs and for any adverse reactions during the first 48 hours • Notify the primary health care provider of any adverse reaction before the next dose of the drug is due

Slide12Copyright © 2014  Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Nursing Process: Nursing Diagnosis Nursing Process: Nursing Diagnosis • Risk for Impaired Comfort  related to fever • Risk for Impaired Skin Integrity  related to photosensitivity • Acute Pain  related to tissue injury during drug therapy • Diarrhea  related to superinfection secondary to antibiotic therapy adverse drug reaction  

Slide13Copyright © 2014  Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Nursing Process: Planning Nursing Process: Planning • The expected outcome includes an optimal response to therapy based on the reason for administration of the anti-infective: – Management of adverse drug reactions – Decrease in anxiety – Understanding of and compliance with the prescribed treatment regimen

Slide14Copyright © 2014  Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Nursing Process: Implementation Nursing Process: Implementation • Promoting an optimal response therapy: – Observe patients for adverse reactions: Notify primary health care provider – Intramuscular administration: Monitor, record, and develop a plan for rotating injection sites – Intravenous administration: Monitor needle site; check rate of infusion; inspect the vein

Slide15Copyright © 2014  Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Nursing Process: Implementation (cont.) Nursing Process: Implementation (cont.) • Monitoring and managing patient needs: – Diarrhea • Check and record the color and consistency of each stool – Acute pain at injection site • Inform the patient about discomfort • Use proper flush solution

Slide16Copyright © 2014  Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Question Question • Is the following statement true or false? • Frequent liquid stools may be an indication of a superinfection or pseudomembranous colitis.

Slide17Copyright © 2014  Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Answer Answer • True • Frequent liquid stools may be an indication of a superinfection or pseudomembranous colitis. If pseudomembranous colitis occurs, it is usually seen 4 to 10 days after treatment is started.

Slide18Copyright © 2014  Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Nursing Process: Implementation Nursing Process: Implementation • Educating the patient and family: – Explain the importance of taking the drug at prescribed time intervals and as directed – Advise about the importance of completing the entire course of treatment – Explain the necessity of contacting the primary health care provider immediately if symptoms occur

Slide19Copyright © 2014  Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Nursing Process: Implementation (cont.)
