Abstract:

Aim of the study was to isolate and characterize Gram negative bacilli causing urinary tract infections in catheterized patients of either sex and above 19 years of age in intensive care units and to study the antimicrobial sensitivity pattern of the urinary isolates. Total of 100 catheterised patients in Intensive care units were analysed retrospectively and prospectively in a period of 1 year from December 2012 to November 2013 to assess the urinary tract infections caused by indwelling catheter. Of 100 cases, 26 showed catheter associated urinary tract infections. Out of them 11 were E. coli, 5 each for Klebsiella spp and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, 2 were Citrobacter spp, and one case each for Enterobacter spp, Acinetobacter spp, Schwanella spp. Isolates were multi drug resistant and showed sensitivity to Cefoperazone-Sulbactam, Piperacillin-Tazobactam, Carbapenems and Colistin. Infections were more with male sex, prolonged catheterization, old age and diabetes. High incidence of CAUTI was found in the first 2 weeks of catheterization. The antimicrobial susceptibility pattern confirmed that most of the urinary isolates in our environment are resistant to the commonly used antibiotics.
