Abstract: Introduction: Klebsiella pneumoniae belongs to family Enterobactericaea and is a developing multidrug resistant organism. It is responsible for infections in immunocompromised and nosocomial infections. Aim: To study the frequency of Klebsiella pneumoniae in blood samples and its sensitivity pattern. Method: Total 552 of blood samples from October 2019 to November 2021 were included in the study. The culture isolates showing Klebsiella pneumoniae were isolated and identified by their colony characters and biochemical reactions. The isolates were processed for antibiotic sensitivity testing by modified Kirby-bauer disc diffusion method. Results: Klebsiella pneumoniae was isolated in 38 blood samples. On antimicrobial sensitivity testing, maximum isolates showed sensitivity to Amikacin followed by ampicillin-sulbactam. Conclusion: the resistant strains of Klebsiella are in increasing trend. Therefore, monitoring of sensitivity patterns helps for better antibiotic stewardship.
