Answer

Admit for monitoring and to initiate dialysis (when indicated) if kidney function progressively worsens. Transfer may be necessary if kidney biopsy facilities are not available and the diagnosis is in doubt or if rapidly progressive renal failure develops. Transfer may also be necessary if azotemia worsens and dialysis facilities are not available on site.
