Do I need to be hospitalized to recieve treatment for leptospirosis?

No, not all individuals suspected for leptospirosis need hospitalization.

Any suspected case of leptospirosis but have stable vital signs, good urine output. no jaundice or difficulty in breating and able to take oral medication may be managed on an out-patient setting.

These clinical decisions are made by the pysician handling the patient after thorough examination and confirmatory laboratory results are in.
