Nitrofurantoin sensitivity testing is based on EUCAST guidance and is only applicable to E. coli, Enterococcus faecalis, Group B streptococci and Staphylococcus saprophyticus. We test nitrofurantoin against other organisms but suggest you use these results as a guide only and if sensitive but clinical response is poor, switch to an alternative antibiotic.
