Abstract: Antimicrobial resistance is a threat to public health worldwide and is associated with higher mortality and morbidity. Despite the extensive knowledge about this problem, drug resistance has continued to emerge, especially in intensive care units (ICUs). The objective of this study was to evaluate the frequencies of epidemiologically relevant resistance phenotypes in pathogens isolated from ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP), bloodstream infections (BSI) and urinary tract infections (UTI) in patients admitt… Show more

“…The first patient with a hospital infection by Imipenem resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa was diagnosed in a woman with wound infection transferred from another hospital in the city and result in a major outbreak with 66 cases and 65% hospital mortality [7]. Low level of infection control practices, mainly low adherence to hand washing and isolation [19], result in a shift of an epidemic toward an endemic situation with spreading to the non-critical areas of the hospital [20].…”
