Three-year-old C.E. is admitted to the Emergency Department (ED) fast track clinic. Her mother tells    the nurse that C.E. has had a low-grade fever for 2 days and is complaining of ear pain and a sore     throat. Mrs. E. states that C.E.’s appetite has been “off,” but she has been drinking and using the bath- room as usual.

As you continue to get a history from Mrs. E., you learn that C.E. has had “ear problems” and throat infec- tions since she was a baby. She is in daycare each weekday, Dad smokes outside of the house, and there is a family history of seasonal allergies. C.E. is allergic to penicillin. Her weight is 14 kg. The PCP diagnoses C.E. with bilateral otitis media and strep pharyngitis. C.E. is given a prescription for Augmentin 600 mg bid PO ´ 7 days. She is to be discharged to home with instructions to follow-up with the ENT (ear, nose, and throat) specialist.
