Q: Once adequate response is obtained from intravenous antibiotic, the choice of oral antibiotic in septic bursitis is? 

 Answer: In Septic bursitis, usual IV antibiotic is either Vancomycin or Cefazolin. Oral conversion to Clindamycin is most appropriate to cover MRSA ( methicillin-resistant S. aureus). Other oral antibiotics which may be used are dicloxacillin, doxycycline, or trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole.
