Assess if Dalbavancin or Oritavancin Can Expedite Discharges
You'll hear the IV antibiotics dalbavancin (Dalvance) or oritavancin (Orbactiv) promoted to prevent or reduce hospital stays.
Think of these like a long-acting vancomycin. But they're usually given as a single dose...and only labeled for skin infections.
They cover similar organisms as vancomycin...plus oritavancin covers the most common strain of vancomycin-resistant enterococci.
