Berks County Medical Society Medical Record Fall 2018 - 21

METHODS:

REFERENCES:

A retrospective electronic chart review was performed evaluating
the treatment of patients diagnosed with AUC who were treated
at Tower Health Urgent Care Centers between January 1 and June
30th, 2018. Patients were identified via ICD-10 urinary tract
infection diagnosis codes. Inclusion criteria included age ≥ 18 years,
female sex, and treated at one of the following Tower Health Urgent
Care Centers: Douglassville, Exeter, and Berkshire Heights. Patients
who were pregnant or had signs or symptoms of pyelonephritis
were excluded. Data collected included demographics, presence of
symptoms of urinary tract infection, urinalysis and urine culture
results, antibiotic allergies, and antibiotic prescription information.

Practice Guidelines for the Treatment of Acute Uncomplicated
Cystitis and Pyelonephritis in Women: A 2010 Update by the
Infectious Diseases Society of America and the European Society
for Microbiology and Infectious Diseases. n.d. Document. 12 July
2018.

CONCLUSIONS:
E. coli accounted for most infections that caused AUC and
was highly susceptible to both nitrofurantoin and trimethoprim/
sulfamethoxazole. The majority of patients received a prescription
for one of these first-line antibiotics; however, the high degree of
variation in treatment duration highlights the need for re-education
on AUC treatment guidelines.
