The child had finished the course of abx for bacterial pneumonia yesterday. Today the mother calls to ask why her son is still very tired. She's been following all instructions given: adequate hydration, encourage her child to sit w/ HOB elevated. What should the nurse say to the mom?
Expect that the resolution for this illness is 1-2 weeks after treatment. Child might need to continue small frequent feeds, cough might persist and child might still be very tired
