Opened in September this year, the new facility at Wansbeck General means patients who would previously have been admitted as inpatients are now treated more quickly, as day cases for things like blood transfusions and intravenous antibiotics.
Intravenous antibiotics are continued until the pyrexia subsides, after which they should be administered orally for a total of 6 weeks, or until infective markers have normalised.
Intravenous medicines need to be given by a healthcare professional, such as a nurse, and in some cases it is only the need for intravenous antibiotics that keeps a person in hospital when they are otherwise medically fit to go home.
