Prescribing Guidance During Antibiotic Shortages

Your local pharmacies may be experiencing shortages of several antibiotics used to treat common pediatric infections. A resource was developed to assist in selecting alternative dosage forms or alternative antibiotics when preferred oral beta lactam antibiotics are not available at community pharmacies. Additionally, as respiratory infections continue this season, please refer to Partners For Kids Prescribing Guidelines for Acute Respiratory Tract Infections for treatment and dosing recommendations. For any further questions about Partners For Kids prescribing resources or guidelines, contact PFKPharmacy@NationwideChildrens.org for the South Central / Southeast Region and PFKPharmacy@childrensdayton.org for the West Central Region.
