which vary even over short periods of time, periodic evaluation
of such activity is essential. Aim: To document the prevalence,
antibiotic susceptibility and resistance patterns of
uropathogens in the area to ensure appropriate therapy.
Methods: This is a cross sectional study on 5108 urine samples
from June 2014 to May 2015. Antibiotic susceptibility testing
was done by Kirby- Bauer disc diffusion method and compared.
Gram positive cocci and Gram negative bacilli detected were
further subjected to detection of Methicillin resistant
Staphyloccocussureus (MRSA) by Cefoxitin disc diffusion tests
and detection of Extended Spectrum Beta lactamases (ESBL)
by ESBL screening test and confirmed by combined disc
