Abstract

Introduction: Hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are one of the important mortality and morbidity reasons in patients. For this reason, recognition of infectious agents and their resistance to antimicrobials in intensive care unit (ICU) is very important for rational antibiotic use. The present study aimed to investigate the types of HAIs, causative microorganisms, resistance patterns, and risk factors, and to identify their impacts on mortality in Anesthesiology, Intensive Medicine, Neurology, General Surgery, and Orthopedics ICUs in Ataturk University, Faculty of Medicine, Research Hospital.
