ABSTRACT

Objective: To screen various pathogens isolated from urinary tract infection in geriatric patients and to determine their antibiotic sensitivity pattern against the commonly used antibiotics. Materials and Methods: A mid-stream clean catch urine was collected from 630 patients carefully then transported to laboratory and culture and antibiotic susceptibility was performed. Result: In total 630 samples, 380 showed positive growth and 250 showed no growth. In the 380 positive growth 180 sample showed significant growth while 200 showed no significant growth. Bacterial agents were isolated from 180 samples, which showed significant growthwere identified as: Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus species, CONS, E. coli,
Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas species, Citrobacter species, Proteus species, Acinetobacter species, Enterobacter aerogenes. Conclusions: UTI in geriatric patients can lead to significant complications. In our study, UTI was seen in 28.5% geriatric patients and E. coli was most common pathogens. Early diagnosis and treatment in UTI during geriatric patients can prevent serious complications and lead to healthy outcome

Keywords: Bacteriuria, Antibiotic sensitivity pattern, Significant Bacteriuria, Urine Culture.
