The present study was conducted to evaluate the antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of enterococcus species in urine, pus, Catheters, HVS and fluids isolated from patients at Holy Family Hospital Rawalpindi. All sample received in laboratory were processed. All urine samples were inoculated on CLED agar and the remaining (pus, Catheters, HVS and fluids) were inoculated on Blood agar and MacConkey agar. All isolates were then identified by conventional method by Gram stain, Catalase and Cephradinedisk. During 6 months study periods from march to august 2016, 100 Enterococcus positive cultures and sensitivity were analysed. 70% isolates were from females and 30% from males. The highest sensitivity, 100% for (Vancomycin, Teicoplanin) and 92% for Nitrofurantion was observed in the present study and the resistance pattern of isolates showed highest resistance 100% to Cephradine.
