Abstract:

Surgical site infection is one of the most common causes of healthcare associated infections. The present study was conducted to evaluate bacteriological profile of post operative wound infections in surgical wards. The present study was conducted on 115 patients admitted in surgical wards (orthopedic, general surgery, ophthalmology, obstetrics and gynecology and otorhinolaryngology). Two sterile cotton swabs were collected aseptically from each patient suspected of having SSI. Out of 115 patients, 52 (45.2%) cases were found to be positive. Common isolates were Staphylococcus aureus in 31%, Klebsiella pneumoniae in 26%, Pseudomonas aeruginosa in 17%, Escherichia coli in16% and Acinetobacter spp in 10%. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).We found that K. pneumoniae and P. aeruginosa strains showed high degree of resistance for ampicillin (100%). Gram negative isolates showed even higher rate of resistance and ciprofloxacin were found resistant for most of the gram negative isolates. Methicillin resistance was seen in 20.4% of all the S. aureus isolates. Authors found that most common bacteria isolate in surgical wounds was Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumonia, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli.
