Abstract:

UTI is one of the most common causes of morbidity and financial burden encountered in the medical practice. It is one of the most common infections described in the outpatient setting and hospital patients. In almost all cases, empirical antimicrobial treatment initiates before the laboratory results of urine culture are available; thus antibiotic resistance may increase in uropathogens due to the frequent use of antibiotics. This study is aimed to identify the bacterial isolates from nosocomial and community acquired urinary tract infections and the distribution of their antibiotic resistance pattern. The study was done on 1287 urine samples obtained from January 2019 to October June 2019. Out of these, 350 samples were collected from patients attending the outpatient department, and 937 samples we collected from hospitalized patients. These samples were subjected to culture, and the organism is confirmed by routine biochemical reactions, and their antimicrobial sensitivity pattern is tested by the Kirby Bauer Disc diffusion method.
