Are theses stool culture findings normal or abnormal?

I need some help knowing if I need to follow up with these results in the document. The test was done in the hospital and I did not get the results until after I was home. I was not sure if these were normal findings or abnormal. I do not see my Dr. For a while but if this is something that needs attention I will try to get in sooner. Thank you in advance, (—)

Hello. The results you uploaded show there were no organisms found in the stool culture. It is OK. Stool cultures can identify pathogens including Salmonella species, Shigella species, E. coli O157:H7, Shiga toxin producing E. coli; Campylobacter species, Vibrio species, Yersinia enterocolitica, Aeromonas species. etc.

The results I up loaded tested positive for many different things salmonella, shingella, campylobacter, e coli 0157, aeromonas, plesiomonas, vibrio and yersinia so are you saying this is all normal?

Your stool culture results are fine…
Do not worry.
You can read the Component result and it is negative for any pathogens.
The above explanation is telling you what all is detected through the stool culture and is not the result..
You stool culture result is the Component Result.
So please do not worry, your stool culture is fine.
