The patient has respiratory symptoms, physical exam, and CXR consistent with bacterial pneumonia. The patient does not show signs of respiratory distress, hypoxia, or dehydration and is taking adequate oral intake. There is no history of asthma or chronic pulmonary disease and I do not feel the need to prescribe steroids or albuterol. Clinical exam is not concerning for bacteremia or sepsis, and there is no radiologic evidence of effusion or empyema. I am comfortable with home management and oral antibiotics. The patient was discharged home with appropriate antibiotics and PCP follow-up.
