  5. CIPROFLOXACIN Nursing implications -
  1. a PO; intermittent infusion
  2. b Binds to bacterial cell wall, causing cell death; bactericidal action; spectrum is broader than penicillins
  3. c Binds to bacterial cell wall membrane, causing cell death; Bactericidal action against susceptible bacteria. Similar to that of first-generation cephalosporins but has increased activity against several other gram-negative pathogens
  4. d PO on empty stomach ; intermittent infusion; observe for s/s of anayphylaxis, monitor bowel function
  5. e PO, IV: Treatment of the following bacterial infections. › Urinary tract and gynecologic infections, including cystitis, gonorrhea, and prostatitis.
