- Amikacin (Amikin)
- kanamycin (Kantrex) are given orally
- Neomycin (Niobiotic) to prepare the bowel for surgery
b.) Cephradine (Valosef)
Prototype for 2nd generation Cephalosporins –Cefoxitin Sodium (Mefoxin)
Use: infection caused by gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria; septicemia, pelvic skin soft tissue infections, prophylaxis in abdominal or pelvic surgery; gonorrhea.
Adverse Effect: same as above
Nursing Implications: Lidocaine is used as diluent for IM injection and helps reduced pain of IM injection.
a.) Cefaclor (Ceclor)
b.) Cefuroxime sodium
Prototype for 3rd generation Cephalosporins –Cefotaxime (Claforan)
Use: Serious infections caused by gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria
Nursing Implication: Don’t mix with aminoglycoside solutions; protect IV solution from light.
Prototype for 4th generation Cephalosporins –Cefepine (maxipene)
Use: UTI caused by E. coli or klebsiella pneumonia caused by streptococcus pneumoniae Pseudomonas acryinosa or enterobacter.
Nursing Implication: have vit. K available if hypoprothombinemia develops.
Action: Inhibits protein synthesis in bacterial cell, bacteriostatic.
Use: person allergic to penicillin, legionnaires Disease, mycoplasma pneumonia, intestinal dysenteric amebiasis, acne, staphylococcal and streptococcal infections.
Adverse Effect: G.I irritation, superintations, allergic reactions, hepatitis, reversible hearing loss.
-Take on empty stomach with a full glass of water.
-G.I symptoms are dose related
-IV must be diluted sufficiently and administered slowly to avoid venous irritation and thrombophlebitis.
1.) Erythromycin estolate (Ilosone)
2.) Azithromycin (Zithromax)
3.) Clarithromycin (Biaxin)
4.) Dirithromycin (Dynabac)
Prototype: Tetracycline hydrochloride (Acromycin V)
Action: broad-spectrum with bateriostatic action and, at higher doses, bactericidal action; inhibits bacterial wall synthesis, reduces free fatty acids from triglycerides thus reducing acne lesions
Use: Chlamydia, mycoplasma, rickettsia, acne vulgaris, gonorrhea, spirochetes
Adverse Effect: hypersensitivity, superinfection chelating to teeth and new bome, N/V, diarrhea, colitis, headache, dizziness, abdominal cramping, photosensitivity.
a.) Avoid use during pregnancy, in nursing women, and in children under age 8 as drug binds to calcium in teeth and new bone growth, which results in tooth discoloration of permanent teeth and retarded bone growth
a.) Take 1hr. before or 2 hrs. After meals and avoid taking with dairy products, antacids, vitamins and minerals.
b.) Avoid the sun while taking drug and for a few days after therapy is terminated
c.) Use meticulous hygiene to reduce super infections.
- Doxycycline (Vibramycin) –can be administered with food.
- Minocycline (Minocin) –can be taken with food. Dizziness and fatigue may occur.
- Demeclocycline (Declomycin) –administer on an empty stomach; foods high in calcium and iron interfere with absorption.

Here are the titles to my textbooks...by sfscheermom
My med-surg book I'm using is Foundations & adult health nursing by Barbara Lauritsen-Christensen, ISBN # is 978-0-323-03934-5. For ob & peds we used Intro to maternity & pediatric nursing by Gloria Leifer. That ISBN # is 978-1416032755. We are supposed to be starting psych this semester. We're using Fudamentals of Mental Health nursing by Kathy Neeb. The ISBN # 978-0803614017. We are done with A&P. We used Structure and Function of the body by Thibodeau and Swisher for that class. For math we used Drug Calculations. I can't remember who that one was by. Our pharm book was basic pharmacology for nurses

Actually, most patients in isolation have their own stethoscope anyway, so you wouldn't even need to take yours in. As long as you remember to take yours off and leave it outside of the patient's room, I don't see why you can't have a cover on your stethoscope in other patients' rooms. It might be a good ice breaker or conversation starter for new patients too, who knows?
Hey, I think we're kinda in the same boat - I graduated from high school in 2003 and went straight to my state school to do prereqs and GEs. It took me 2 1/2 years to get all that done and I started the nursing program January 2006
