Bacterial meningitis treatment

Infectious disease specialists consult with hospital and ER physicians to start patients on the proper antibiotics as soon as the diagnosis is confirmed. If you have bacterial meningitis, you will need to stay in the hospital.

Treatment options include:

  • Intravenous antibiotics selected to treat specific types of bacteria
  • Steroids to reduce inflammation, if present
