Self-Assessment Questions


Answer 5
  1. A patient with multiple recurrences of renal stone formation. Hospitalization is recommended in patients with pain that is not controlled by oral analgesics, in patients who are experiencing severe vomiting that is unresponsive to oral medications, in patients with one kidney, and in patients with an infection that is noted due to fever or on urinalysis. Also, patients with very large stones are often admitted to the hospital for early procedural therapy. All other stones can be managed on an ambulatory basis.
