Abstract

Multidrug resistant bacterial strains are posing a lot of difficulties for the treating physician and also mounting to huge economic burden on the patient and hospitals Among them MRSA is one of the important pathogen. Material & methods: Samples collected from various department of our hospital as per the standard protocol were processed in our lab. S. aureus isolates, were screened for Methicillin resistance by cefoxitin disc and susceptibility testing was performed by Kirby Bauer disk diffusion method as per the CLSI guidelines. Out of the 953 isolates of Staphylococcus aureus 300 (31.4%) isolates were MRSA sample wise highest isolation of MRSA was from blood 32.56% and pus 32.52% sex wise 165 (55%) from males, department wise from Surgical wards 134(44.6%)and among the antimicrobials tested linezolid (0%), vancomycin(0%) showed the least resistance followed by amikacin 05%. Conclusion: MRSA is an important pathogen for nosocomial infections so studying prevalence of this pathogen in various clinical samples and screening for MRSA colonization in health care workers will help in hospital infection control practices. vancomycin ,linezolid were found to be highly effective.
