Re the pt who does not need admission but has osteo- why d/c on antibiotics?
Why not wait for a bone biopsy and isolate the bug?
Then give bug appropriate abx.
Abx before bx may condemn the pt to broad spectrum abx for an extended period

Matthew D. -

That's a good point.
I think it would be totally reasonable to wait for a bone biopsy before starting abx.
For me if I probe to bone or have a high clinical suspicion of osteo, starting the patient on some type of abx makes me feel like I'm doing something while waiting for the next steps in the workup.
