In brief: If infection suspect

Checking for infection is general you rarely can suspect klebsiella but a culture grows 1 or more bacteria type.
It is isolated in another culture and identified under the microscope or by specific chemical tests, small antibiotic discs placed hopefully slow the growth down and the best antibiotic will hopefully be determined.
