Unrestrained anti-microbial resistance (AMR) among bacterial pathogens has made the management and treatment of post-operative wound infections difficult. This study assessed the current AMR patterns of bacterial isolates in post-operative wound infections in a tertiary care hospital in Kathmandu, Nepal. Pus swabs collected from postoperative wound infections and submitted for culture and sensitivity were included in this study. Isolation and identification of the organism was done by standard… CONTINUE READING
