Bacterial isolates from infected wounds and their antibiotic susceptibility patterns: Remarks about wound infection
Author(s): Dr. Krishna Kumar Patel and Dr. Sarita Patel
Abstract: The antibiotic susceptibilities patterns of bacterial isolates from wound samples collected from patients in a tertiary care hospital of Chhattisgarh, India. E. coli was the most prevalent pathogen (51.2%) followed by Staphylococcus aureus (21%), Klebsiella pneumoniae (11.6%), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (5.8%), Citrobacter spp. (3.5%), Acinetobacter baumannii (2.3%), Proteus mirabilis (2.3%), and Streptococcus spp. (2.3%). E. coli, K. pneumoniae, A. baumannii, and Citrobacter isolates were resistant to multiple antibiotics including higher generation cephalosporins. S aureus and Streptococcus isolates were sensitive to cloxacillin and vancomycin. However, P. aeruginosa, P. mirabilis, and Streptococcus isolates were found to be less resistant to the spectrum of antibiotics tested. Overall, our findings indicate the prevalence of resistance to different classes of antibiotics in bacterial isolates from pus infections and hence highlight the need for effective surveillance, regulator reporting, and anti-biogram-guided antibiotic prescription.
