Article excerpt

Background: The aim of this study was the evaluation of antibiotic resistance patterns of main bacteria isolated from surgical rooms, Intensive Care Units (ICU and NICU) and Burn wards in Hamadan Education Hospitals

Methods: This was a cross-sectional study that 250 samples were randomly collected from environment and apparatus of intensive care units.
