Abstract


A total of forty four samples were taken from operating rooms of various hospitals in Basrah province during January to April 2014, the samples were collected from beds, walls, instruments, lights, dresses and floor of operating rooms. Thirty three bacterial isolates were diagnosed, Pseudomonas aeruginosa was the predominant bacterial type in 18 samples in percent (54%), followed by other bacterial types as follows: Bacillus subtilis (9.09%), Actinomyces sp., Staph.aureus and Streptomyces sp. (6.06%), while other bacterial types were isolated in percent 3.03% were Actinobacter sp. Serratia marcescens, E.coli, Klebsiella, Staph.saprophyticus and Candida albicans (p <0.05). An antibiotic susceptibility test was carried out in the present study for bacterial types against seven commercial antibiotics by disc-agar diffusion method. Multi drug resistant strains and Resistance/Sensitive ratio were determined for all bacterial isolates.

Keywords: Mdrb, operating theatre, hospital.
