Nursing ManagementExplain to the patient to take their medication as prescribed daily or twice a day. Ask the patient to get in contact with their partner(s) they that have been sexually active with and ask for them to be tested for a STI or PID. Explain different methods of protection available if patient is having unprotected sex. Inform the patient their condition will get worse if they do not comply with medical treatment and to refrain from having sexual intercourse. PrognosisApproximately 25% of patients diagnosed with acute PID develop long-term sequelae. The risk for sequelae is increased if the patient has recurrent episodes of PID. Patients with a history of PID are at risk for recurrent upper genital tractinfections. These women should be educated about risks associated with PID, such as lack of barrier contraception use and douching, in order to decrease their risk of recurrence.ReferencesLazenby, W.
