AbstractABSTRACT Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) is a condition characterized by the presence of bacterias or microbes that grow and multiply in the urinary tract in significant numbers. Anatomically, the types of UTI are divided into lower UTI/ cystitis and upper UTI/pyelonephritis. E. coli is one of the most common bacteria that cause UTIs. The main therapy given in UTI management is antibiotics to kill bacteria that cause UTIs. The purpose of this study was to describe the use of antibiotics in UTI patients including the right drug, the right dose, the right route of administration, and the right duration of therapy.
