In brief: See below

Gram positive rods are a class of bacteria.
The majority of bacteria involved in disease are either gram positive or negative and come in rod, cocci (grapes), or spirals. If the culture says it is gpr negative, then that means no gram positive rods were found. However, it may say other forms were found, including gnr.
