Introduction: The worldwide escalation in both community- and hospital-acquired antimicrobial-resistant bacteria is threatening the ability to effectively treat patients, emphasizing the need for continued surveillance, more appropriate antimicrobial prescription, prudent infection control, and new treatment alternatives.

Objective: To study the prevalence of bacteria from the different samples (Blood, Urine, CSF, PUS) and to examine the antibiotic sensitivity pattern of isolated organisms.

Methods: Around n=150 samples of Urine, Blood, CSF and Pus sample were collected from the patient attending Teerthanker Mahaveer medical Hospital college and Research Centre.

Results: Out of 150 clinical samples, highest number of isolates were gram-positive, Staphylococcus aureus n=47 (31.33%) followed by E. Coli n=37(24.66%), Klebseilla n=33(22.00%), Pseudomonas n=11(07.33%). S. aureus was highly sensitive to Gentamycin (88.09%) and least sensitive to Co-trimoxazole (14.28%). Tobramycin & Linezolid were 95.23% sensitive followed by Amikacin (90.47%), Meropenem (90.47%), Levofloxacin (88.09%).

Conclusion: In our study Staphylococcus aureus to be most common isolates followed by Escherichia coli, Klebseilla, Pseudomonas, Citrobacter, Proteus.
