Antimicrobial resistance is serious threat to global health. WHO has declared that antibiotic resistance is one of the top 10 threats to global public health. One of the most useful drugs which possesses broadest spectrum of activity against Gram negative bacterial pathogens are Carbapenems. But with emergence of super bugs several recent studies have shown that the resistance to carbapenems is increasing throughout the world. WHO has identified carbapenem resistant gram negative bacterial infections as priority pathogen list to my present study 38% of carbapenem resistance is seen and the predominant organism is Klebsiella pneumoniae with 56% .most of the CRGNB are isolated from NICU and Paediatric ward. Conclusion Carbapenem resistant gram negative clinical isolates are increasing in rapid rate because of gene transfer throughout the world. In a country like India with huge population, in order to control the spread of these microorganisms, serious steps need to be taken which include contact precautions, hand hygiene , proper medical waste disposal, restricted use of invasive devises and adherent to antibiotic stewardship.

Keywords: Carbapenem Resistant Gram Negative Bacteria, Paediatric ward
