So let's wrap up this part of the video series. The urine C&S is one of the critical tools in
identifying a UTI and working as a team to ensure the treatment plan is effective. Results
from the culture and sensitivity can take 1 to 3 days to be received from the lab. Empiric
antibiotic therapy may be started initially until C&S results are received. Reviewing the
results of the C&S are within the practice of the physician, RN, and the PharmD. The culture
report will identify the organism or organisms present in the urine. The sensitivity chart will
identify which medications will attack the identified organisms. Thank you for watching this
video with us.
