Insights into Urinary Tract Infection Bacteriology and Antimicrobial Sensitivity: A Study from a Central Indian Tertiary Care Hospital

Dr. Ashish N. Dhanvijay

Abstract: Urinary tract infections (UTIs) represent a common health issue globally, with varying bacterial profiles and antimicrobial resistance patterns across different regions. This study aimed to provide comprehensive insights into the bacteriological profile of UTIs and the antimicrobial sensitivity patterns observed in patients attending a tertiary care hospital in Central India. A retrospective analysis of urine culture results from patients diagnosed with UTIs between 1st January 2024 and 1st May 2024 was conducted. The study revealed prevalent antimicrobial resistance among common uropathogens, emphasizing the urgent need for tailored antibiotic stewardship strategies in managing urinary tract infections in Central India. These findings underscore the importance of appropriate antimicrobial stewardship and surveillance strategies to combat UTIs effectively in this region.
