AbstractSurgical site infection(SSI) is the third most common nosocomial infection which are usually encountered in surgical indoor of hospitals.It shows adverse impact on both hospital as well as patients. The Aims and objectives of this study was to find out the common bacteria causing SSI and its sensitivity to commonly used antibiotics, its incidence and common risk factors of SSI in our hospital. For this purpose 100 patients were selected undergoing routine and emergency surgery.T he swabs from infected site were taken and sent for culture and sensitivity. The duration and type of surgery performed were also taken into consideration. From this study we concluded that E. Coli (30.5%)was the commonest pathogen followed by staph aureus (24.67%) and pseudomonas aeruginosa (20%) . These organisms were found to be sensitive to commonly used antibiotics .It was also found that prolonged surgery ( > 2hrs) and undergoing stoma procedure were significantly associated with occurance of SSI . Routine and clean surgery was associated with minimal risk of SSI .
