Abstract

Introduction: Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) is one of the most common causes of hospital-acquired infections. Among UTIs acquired in the hospital, approximately 75% are associated with a urinary catheter. CAUTI is associated with major morbidity and can lead to genitourinary complications.

Materials and Methods: 300 catheterized urine samples received in the bacteriological laboratory during the study period were processed as per the standard bacteriological procedures.

Results: Out of 300 samples from patients showing signs and symptoms of CAUTI included in our study a total of 76 strains were isolated, the isolates were identified based on culture characteristics, Gram’s stain and biochemical reactions and were subjected to antimicrobial susceptibility testing.

Conclusion: In the present study, we found that Escherichia coli was the major organism for infection and was susceptible to Colistin followed by Meropenem, Imipenem and by other antibiotics, in that order.

Keywords: CAUTI; HAI Bacteriological Profile
