Answer

Investigate and attempt to eliminate all potential sites of infection (ie, attain good "source control"). For instance, an identified abscess should be drained, or an infected joint should prompt surgical consultation for drainage. Remove any potentially infected invasive devices, such as intravenous or urinary catheters.
