Answer

See the list below:

  • Outpatient treatment with oral antibiotics may be considered for selected patients with mild disease if they can be closely monitored for signs of deterioration.

  • Continue outpatient treatment after the patient is discharged from the hospital until antibiotic therapy is completed and symptoms resolve.
