Good luck!Case 1: Drug Abuse A child with the following signs and symptoms (headache, chills, fever and sore throat) is brought into the Urgent Care where you are working. The mother tells you that she thinks her 4-year-old daughter, Daisy, has strep throat and would like for you to write her a prescription for an antibiotic. You examine the child’s throat, but do not see the characteristic white patches that would indicate that she has a Strep infection. The young mother tells you that she has been giving her 4-year old child leftover antibiotic (penicillin) prescribed for her older son, but that it doesn’t seem to be working. Based on the child’s symptoms, you think the infection is caused by either drug-resistant bacteria or possibly a virus. You collect a throat culture and send it off to the lab for testing.
