Abstract:

Aim of the study was to isolate and characterize Gram positive cocci causing urinary tract infections in catheterized patients and to study the antimicrobial sensitivity pattern of the urinary isolates. Total of 100 catheterised patients in Intensive care units were analysed retrospectively in a period of 1 year from December 2017 to November 2018 to assess the urinary tract infections. Of 100 cases,11 showed catheter associated urinary tract infections. Out of them 10 were Enterococcus spp, and 1 was Coagulase negative staphylococci. Isolates were multi drug resistant and showed sensitivity to Vancomycin, Linezolid, Teicoplanin. 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
