ABSTRACT
Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a hazardous nosocomial pathogen. Therefore the knowledge of current trend of MRSA and their antimicrobial profile is necessary. The main goal of the present study to determine the current trend of MRSA and their antimicrobial susceptibility pattern in tertiary care hospital Delhi NCR region India.Clinical specimens were cultured as per conventional microbiological methods. The organisms were identified by catalase test,coagulase tube test and mannitol test. Antimicrobial susceptibility test was done as per Kirby-Bauer disc diffusion method; the isolates were tested for methicillin resistance by using oxacillin disc.A total of 551 isolates were tested as S.aureus out of these 72 isolates were identified as MRSA.Resistant pattern to Augmentin and Cefazolin was 100% and resistant to vancomycin was not found. Antimicrobial susceptibility pattern varies from region to region but vancomycin still found most effective drug against MRSA in India.
