Cartoon of recording infection

If your child has symptoms then it is IMPORTANT that your child always has a urine culture BEFORE the antibiotic is changed. Please ask your doctor for the result of the urine culture and write it down. You should also write down what antibiotic was given and check that the urine has cleared of infection with a follow up culture one week after stopping the antibiotics. You should take these details to the children's clinic whenever you attend so that the hospital doctor can see what has happened since you were last seen.
