Sumary of Guidelines describe how non-allergists can de-label penicillin allergies:
- DPTs should use the penicillin that was involved in the index reaction, with amoxicillin used when the genuine penicillin involved in the reaction is secret.
- Ramsey, MD Patients and many medical professionals typically think that keeping a penicillin allergy label protects the patient, as they elude using a drug that may cause damage.
- But because these guidelines allow a significant proportion of patients to be de-labeled outside of specialist allergy clinics, they could support testing at-scale within the National Health Service, the authors continued.
- Non-allergists providing de-labeling services can include allied medical health care workers such as pharmacists, nurses and associate physicians in a hospital setting who work under immediate or remote medical supervision.
