Abstract :

Background and rationale: Worldwide antibiotic resistance is a problem. Many complex factors are related to this. India is also seeing the rise in resistant strains of several bacteria on the antibiotic sensitivity pattern and prevalent microorganisms. This study also attempts to establish a way of presentation of the relevant findings which can be used in future to ensure easy comparability and contrasting of findings. In any tertiary care teaching hospital antimicrobials are a major class of drugs prescribed. Empirical use of antibiotics are needed many a times but it cause drug resistance which need study and need evaluation after the culture and sensitivity reports are available. This study was planned to assess the drug resistance and sensitivity patterns of the isolates from urine, bold, body fluids as well as pus of which 856 samples were studied within six months’ time and the sensitivity to antibiotics were studied. Methods: An observational- prospective study was conducted in the Tertiary care teaching hospital over a period of six months to assess antibiotic sensitivity and resistance pattern. The specimens were collected from the adult patients (age >18 years) admitted in the Internal Medicine ward of Rohilkhand Medical College Hospital, Bareilly, over a period of 6 months. The sampling technique was consecutive sampling method. Specimens which were culture positive, were only included in the study for analysis. Multiple specimens were taken. A total of 856 consecutive patients were included in the study receiving antibiotics in the hospital as indoor patients having cultures with significant growth. Samples of urine, blood and body fluids were collected and culture growth was identified with antimicrobial sensitivity testing was done and resistance pattern was noted.
