In brief: Possibly.

If your mother is on effective doses of appropriate antibiotics, as revealed by her blood cultures, and is without any worrisome signs and symptoms such as fever, low blood pressure, or dizziness, then she may be safe.
If there is any concern that her condition is worsening, she must seek immediate medical attention.
