You are a hospital administrator examining your patient census. Your nurse manager says that one of her patients can only be cared for by providers who are not pregnant. The patient needs a negative air pressure room with the door closed when she gets a treatment. Providers follow contact and droplet precautions and wear an N95 mask during treatment. The patient has had a bilateral lung transplant in the past for cystic fibrosis.
Next door, a patient admitted for jaundice is taking the same drug in a different formulation but does not need any of those precautions.
Challenge: What drug are we talking about?
