Abstract: TO IDENTIFY BACTERIAL ISOLATES IN URINE SAMPLE AND STUDY THEIR ANTIBIOTIC SENSITIVITY PATTERN AT TERTIARY CARE HOSPITAL IN SOUTHERN RAJASTHAN. PRESENTED BY: Dr. Bhumika Vageriya 3rd year MD student in the department of microbiology at RNT medical college, Udaipur, Rajasthan. Under the guidance of Dr. Anshu Sharma, Dr. Sandhya Mishra OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study to identify different pathogens in urine sample and to study their antibiotic sensitivity pattern at tertiary care hospital in Udaipur, Rajasthan from March 2018 to September201 MATERIAL AND METHOD: A total of 500 urine samples were included in the study from patients attended at MBGH, RNT medical college Udaipur with proper sterile precautions. Samples were cultured on HiCrome UTI agar and bacterial isolates obtained were identified using biochemical reactions. Antimicrobial sensitivity testing was performed by the Kirby-Bauer disc diffusion method. RESULT: A total of 200 uropathogens were isolated from 500 urine samples. Escherichia Coli was the most commonly isolated uropathogen accounting for 47.50 % (95/200) of the total isolates followed by Enterococcus accounting for 28 % (56/200) of the total isolates. Among Gram negative bacteria Meropenem was found to be most sensitive and among Gram positive cocci Linezolid was found to be most sensitive. CONCLUSION: Such studies are required for regular monitoring and to obtain reliable information about sensitivity pattern of uropathogens for empirical therapy of patients with UTI. Meropnem should be reserved for empirical treatment in patients with UTI in resistant cases.
