Abstract:

Pneumonia occurring in a hospital or long term care facilities remains a common and serious illness, despite the availability of potent new antibiotics and effective vaccines. Aim of the study is to identify and isolate the bacteria causing pneumonia in hospitalized patients. The present study was carried out from June 2014 to July 2015 in the department of microbiology, Smt. Kashibai Navale Medical College and General Hospital, Pune. Total 920 blood, sputum and BAL (Broncho Alveolar Lavage) samples were received during this period. All were processed for identification of bacteria as per standard microbiological procedures. 1) Out of 920 samples 280 (30.43%) grew the pathogenic bacteria. 2) Among 280 isolates Klebsiella pneumoniae 42.85% was the most common followed by Pseudomonas aeruginosa 28.57%, Staphylococcus aureus 21.43% and Streptococcus pneumoniae 7.14%. Gram negative bacilli predominate in the bacteriological profile of pneumonia.
