A total of 406 post-operative clean wounds were studied for the presence of sepsis and antibiogram of organisms were established. The over all post-operative sepsis rate was 13% (clinical) and 12% (bacteriological). Staphylococcus aureus (32%) and Pseudomonas species (21%) were the commonest organisms recovered and Netilmycin, Cephaloridine and Norfloxacin were the most effective antibiotics against both Gram positive and negative infections. This study reflects the change in pattern of infecting bacterial flora in case of post operative wound infections and its antibiogram.
