Evaluate if Patients Are Really Allergic to Penicillin
You'll see a bigger push for penicillin allergy testing.
Over 90% of patients who say they're allergic to penicillin, actually aren't. Plus about 80% of those with a severe penicillin allergy will lose their sensitivity 10 years after a reaction.
Identify patients who may be incorrectly labeled as penicillin-allergic. Ask patients what the reaction was, when it occurred, etc. Use our questionnaire, Investigating Possible Drug Allergy or Sensitivity.
