Answer

Patients may require care for the management of deficits resulting from Hib meningitis, including static encephalopathy, seizures, behavioral changes, or epilepsy. In some instances, patients may require anticonvulsants, analgesics, and medications to promote sleep or to attenuate behavioral, attention, or learning problems.
