ABSTRACT
The nosocomial urinary tract infection is the most common nosocomial infections. It is an important risk in hospitals in terms of cost and management.The objective of our work is to study the characteristics of nosocomial urinary tract infection in the intensive care unit of Tlemcen Hospital University. The study has involved 20 adult patients whose average age is 52.8 years. Factors favoring were dominated by the urinary catheter open, duration and mode of hospitalization and certain diseases such as diabetes. The flora of nosocomial urinary catheter is dominated by coagulase-negative staphylococci resistant to oxacillin.Catheter-associated urinary tract infections reflect the general hygiene policy, starting with nurse practice patterns at catheter insertion, and ending with antibiotherapy prescriptions by medical staff.
