Abstract

Resistance strains of S. aureus become a new challenge in treatment of infections. Methicilin Resistant S. aureus(MRSA) have become very common and if a MRSA outbreak happens, it would be difficult to control. Evaluating the rate of MRSA and its resistance pattern can be used to formulate antibiotic policy and appropriate control measures. This study was conducted on 503 S. aureus isolates obtained from different origins (2010-2012) in Shahidbeheshti hospital of Kashan. 38.5 of S. aureus samples were MRSA and 75.9 of S. aureus samples were from blood. The rate of MRSA is high in Shahidbeheshti hospital. Resistance rates of MRSA isolates are twice as high as all strains and shows multidrug resistance nature of MRSA. But a lot of antibiotics can still be used after sensitivity test and we should not harsh to use vancomycin because S. aureus will produce resistance strains soon. © IDOSI Publications, 2013.
