Study spotlights inappropriate prescribing in urgent care

Researchers with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the University of Utah, and the Pew Charitable Trusts report that 45.7% of patients who visited urgent care centers in 2014 for respiratory illnesses that don't require antibiotics end up with prescriptions for those conditions, followed by 24.6% of patients treated in emergency departments (EDs), 17% of patients who went to medical offices, and 14.4% of patients who visited retail clinics. The findings are based on analyses of 2014 claims data from patients with employer-sponsored health insurance.

Previous estimates of outpatient antibiotic prescribing by some of the same researchers had pegged the amount of unnecessary prescribing at 30%, a number that some experts believe is conservative. Study coauthor David Hyun, MD, a senior officer with Pew's antibiotic resistance project, said the findings suggest that could very well be the case.

"The real number may very well be higher than 30% when it comes to inappropriate prescriptions," Hyun told CIDRAP News.

Can you not see a regular GP in the meantime to get new prescriptions for your inhalers? I know this is obvious, but asthma is a life threatening condition and if you can't go without your inhalers for even a few days, then you need to make absolutely
