Document WHEN Allergic Reactions Occurred on Med Histories

You'll see more emphasis on properly documenting allergic reactions to penicillin antibiotics (amoxicillin, etc).

Patients with a "penicillin allergy" often end up on a NON-beta-lactam, such as vancomycin or a quinolone (levofloxacin, etc)...instead of a DIFFERENT beta-lactam, such as a cephalosporin (cefazolin, etc).

But using the non-beta-lactam "big guns" can lead to more resistant bacteria (C. diff, etc)...longer hospital stays...and skyrocketing costs.
