    Case Study Lab Report for Lab 15:

    Staphylococci

    The concept behind the case studies presented in Lab 15 used to illustrate the genus Staphylococcus is for you and your lab partners as a group to:

    1. Come up with a valid diagnosis of the type of infectious disease seen in your case study and identify the bacterium causing that infection.

    2. Support your group’s diagnose based on:

    a. Any relevant facts in the patient’s history. (A reliable on-line source will be used to support this.)
    b. The patient’s signs and symptoms. (A reliable on-line source will be used to support this.)
    c. Each of the individual lab tests given in your case study.
    d. All microbiological lab tests you performed as part of the project.

    The due date for this report can be found on the class calendar. Your grade for this lab is based on the completeness of your report and written evidence of the critical thinking process that went into making and supporting your diagnosis. Remember, you are trying to convince your instructor that you understand how the diagnosis was made by supporting that diagnosis with data.

    Grading:

    The lab 15 Lab Report is worth 33 points each.

    These case studies are based in part on your in-class participation as part of your group. Therefore:

    a. If you were not in lab when the inoculations with your unknown were performed, 3 points will be deducted from your Lab Report score for labs 12, 14, and 15; 6 points from your Lab Report score for the Final Project.

    b. If you were not in lab when the results of your lab tests were observed, 3 points will be deducted from your Lab Report score for labs 12, 14, and 15; 6 points from your Lab Report score for the Final Project..

    c. For each day your Lab Report is late, 2 points will be deducted from your Lab Report score for labs 12, 14, and 15; 4 points from your Lab Report score for the Final Project.

    Be sure to handle all the bacterial cultures you are using in lab today as if they are pathogens! Be sure to wash and sanitize your hands well at the completion of today’s lab.

    Also, make sure you observe the results of someone in your lab who had an unknown different from yours . The Performance Objectives for Lab 15 tell you what you are expected to be able to do on the practical.
