    Hello Doctor.
    You haven't mentioned on which day of hospital admission she developed fever, it looks like a hospital acquired infection and that is the reason why patient isn't improving with ceftraxone.
    Blood and urine culture needs to be taken and patient should be started on pipricillin tazobactum and Levofloxacin an x ray chest, ultrasonogram abdomen, will help in identifying the source of sepsis.
