What We Are Doing:

Proven research shows that certain antibiotics are better suited for certain types of surgery. Surgeons at PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center order the antibiotics that are strongly recommended for the type of surgery the patient will be having, unless that particular patient should not receive that antibiotic because of an allergy or for some other reason.
