Blood culture remains a gold standard in establishing diagnosis of all blood stream infections as well as sepsis (Nagoba, 2005). Thus this study was aimed at isolating and identifying bacterial and/or fungal agents from blood culture of the patients admitted in the hospital. A total of 309 blood cultures were performed for a period of one year. A total of 74.43% (230/309) samples did not yield any bacterial/fungal growth whereas the rest 25.57% (79/309) showed growth with 79 isolates. All the samples yielded single isolates. Of the 79 isolates, 32.91% (26/79) were Gram negative bacilli, 56.96% (45/79) were Gram positive bacteria and 10.12% (08/79) Candida species. Of the total isolates, Klebseilla spp. – 25.31% (20/79) was the most frequent isolate from blood culture followed by CoNS – 22.78% (18/79), Staphyloccoccus aureus – 16.45% (13/79), MRCoNS – 20.82% (09/79), Candida species 10.12% (08/79), MRSA 3.79% (03/79) and 2.53% (02/79) each of E. coli, Enterococcus species, Acineto bacter species and Pseudomonas spp.
