Abstract


Infections due to antibiotic resistant bacteria have increased alarmingly in both developed and developing countries. Unrestrained and rapidly
spreading bacterial growth has turned the management of wound infections into a serious challenge. This study aimed to determine the prevalence
of different bacterial pathogens and their antibiotic susceptibility in various types of wound infections. A cross-sectional study was conducted to
collect 101 wound swabs. All isolated bacteria were identified based on colony characteristics, gram stain and standard biochemical tests, and
antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST) with the disc diffusion method. The diversity of isolated bacteria and their susceptibility patterns signify a
need to implement a proper infection control strategy, which can be achieved by carrying out antibiotic sensitivity tests of the isolates.
