Download this policy

Document Purpose

To standardize antibiotic use (oral) and intramuscular for MCU. The policy will describe appropriate dosing, timing and choice of periprocedural antibiotics and make recommendations about which select patients may require additional IM antibiotics. This should reduce inappropriate use of antibiotics in accordance with antibiotic stewardship whilst reducing potential adverse events (eg UTI) from MCU's.
