    Urine C&S results.

    Doctor is on spring break can anyone clue me in .

    Specimen Source URINE
    Collection Date 15-MAR-2017
    Collection Time 10:35
    Colony Count 10-100 x E6 CFU/L
    Culture Status Final
    Culture Report Urine Culture
    Organism 1) Viridans group Streptococcus
    Organism(s) in culture considered to be
    non-pathogens; suggestive of specimen
    contamination.


    I did a sterile draw.

    It isn't unheard of to have specimen contamination at the lab. It happens.

    That said, are you having symptoms of a urinary tract infection or was this done for a routine physical?

    Strep Viridans is a common skin bacteria that can contaminate cathed specimens even using sterile technique.

    gjnl's question is on-point. If your urine was clear and you are't having UTI symptoms, they may just ask for a repeat specimen.

    Everyone is correct. This is a negative UA which suggests you do not have an infection.
