Rates of adverse events associated with community-based parenteral anti-infective therapy
Rehm SJ, Longworth DL
The delivery of antibiotics through a CoPAT program can shorten hospital stay and reduce health care costs for selected patients. In this study involving more than 2000 courses of therapy, CoPAT-related events occurred infrequently. Because CoPAT was not without risks, however, periodic clinical and laboratory monitoring of patients receiving this form of therapy remains essential.
