There is value in intramuscular injections in the house calls cohort especially to special accomodation homes for the elderly and nursing homes .
In Australia many doctors do house visits for ill patients after hours both in the community and for the elderly .
Here IM medications such as maxolon for gastroenteritis in patients older than twelve often works .
IM ceftriaxone One Gram
for elderly in special accomodation where the ceftriaxone powder is mixed with 1% or 2% xylocaine finds favour for pneumonia suspected urinary infection and cellulitis particularly at night if clinically safe to avoid transfer to Emergency and hospital.
IM adrenalin is the route of first choice for anaphylaxis and severe asthma provided the patients are not anywhere near extremis by clinical judgement .
