Assessment of Bacterial Profile and Antimicrobial Resistance Pattern of Bacterial Isolates from Blood Culture at Rims, Ranchi, Jharkhand
Abstract: Blood stream infection is one of the most noxious complication that can be prevented in critical care units. Its consequences are prolonged period of hospital stay which is expensive for the individual and most of the times, there is loss of life. Main device for assessment of blood stream infection in clinically suspected bacteraemia or septicaemia is blood culture which gives guidance for proper antimicrobial management. AIM- To determine various organisms causing blood stream infection along with their antibiotic resistance pattern at Rajendra Institute of Medical sciences, Ranchi, Jharkhand. Material and methods – The study was conducted in Department of Microbiology, RIMS, Ranchi. The duration of study was of one year from June 2018 to May 2019 during which total of 248 blood samples were received. Identification of isolates was done by standard biochemical tests and antimicrobial resistance pattern by following CLSI guidelines 2018. Result – Out of 248 blood samples, 162 blood samples were positive (65.3 %). Among gram positive organism Staphylococcus aureus was 32.7 % followed by Coagulase Negative Staphylococcus Aureus 11.1 % and Enterococcus 1.8 %. Klebsiella spp. was found to be 11.7 % which was highest among gram negative organisms followed by E. coli (4.3 %) and Acinetobacter spp.3.7 % and candida isolated in 4.9 % cases.
