For any patient with a suspected urinary tract infection during the course of the study a basic questionnaire will have to be filled out and diagnostic tests (urine sample for culture, dipstick assay for the detection of nitrites and leukocyte- esterase and a POC CRP test) will have to be perform.
Device: Diagnostic tests
C Reactive Protein (CRP) measurement on capillary blood using a point-of-care test to determine C Reactive Protein level in the blood
Device: Diagnostic tests
Uricult dipslide: Easy-to-perform bacterial culture test for dectecting urinary tract infections in point of care settings
- Serious infection [ Time Frame: 2 months ]To verify if the elderly has a serious infection, the research team will combine test results (dipstick, dipslide and CRP measurement) with signs/symptoms reported in the patient questionnaire.
- Reliability of the uricult dipslide in a population of institutionalized older patients [ Time Frame: 2 months ]To verify the reliability of the uricult dipslide, a comparison will be made between the result of a dipslide read after 48h at room temperature, a dipslide incubated for 24h at +/- 35° Celsius and a urine culture test performed in a microbiology lab
