Sputum culture positive for yeast
Patient admitted with pneumonia. Sputum culture positive for a few yeast (Candida Albicans) is documented. Order for Nystantin swish & swallow.
I normally query for significance, if any of a positive sputum culture but as this was yeast which can be contaminant and the only treatment was Nystantin S&S would a query still be appropriate to clarify if this is true pathogen or colonization?
