    urine sample

    The nurse took a sample of urine and sent it to the lab from the indwelling catheter the result today was mixed growth what does this mean ???

    It means there are more than 1 different bacteria growing. It could also indicate the specimen was contaminated. Once the sensitivity comes back then they will give you an antibiotic hopefully that will treat both.
