Globally, multidrug-resistant bacteria affects wound infections, both hospital-acquired infections and community-acquired infections. The main isolates cultured from 607 subjects with wound infections were methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Acinetobacter spp. [multidrug resistant (MDR)]. Gram-negative bacteria caused most of the infections (67%) compared with gram-positive bacteria. Diabetic patients tend to have wound infections with mixed causative agents compared with non-diabetic patients.
