You can request the colony count through your NJH patient portal. It usually takes 4 + weeks after you send in your culture and maybe 8-10 weeks for it to be final. It is also included on the final report that you see in the patient portal.

Well, there's the trick then. It is through my local ID, goes to a local lab, and then they send to NJH for further identification and susceptibilities. I asked my local ID and he said that NJH doesn't provide that information. Hmmmm….
