Medical experts at Perham Living are working to make sure that antibiotic use is taken seriously with their antibiotic stewardship policy and program. Antibiotic stewardship is the practice of improving antibiotic use. Although antibiotics save lives when used to treat bacterial infections, antibiotics won't work for viruses such as a cold or flu and many urinary tract conditions.
