In our lecture this week, we discuss the very important topic of prokaryotic (bacterial) cell structure. One of the key points discussed is the difference between the Gram (+) and Gram (-) bacterial cell wall structure. For the Discussion Board this week, please read the following case study, research this topic, and respond to the following prompt. You must include at least 2 scientific references in correct APA format.
Here are the specific directions for the Module this week:
1). Read the following case study.
You have been having symptoms of a urinary tract infection (UTI) and make an appointment to see your doctor. After a review of your case, a urine culture is set up. Confirmation of a UTI caused by the Gram (-) bacteria, E.coli, is made. The doctor prescribes the antibiotic, nitrofurantoin. You don’t really want to spend extra money on another antibiotic since you have some antibiotic left over from a previous Strep throat. You decide to take the antibiotic you already have instead. Why might this not be a good idea? What should be done instead?
I need it as soon as possible as short as possible max one page, but answering the question logically due to the bacteria gram + , – , and cell wall, with sources that I can find online in correctly APA format. Thank you
