Eighty-four isolates of Staphylococcus aureus (S.aureus) obtained from nosocomial infections were screened for methicillin resistance, which was found to be about 40.47%. This indicates a rising trend in the incidence of MRSA over the previous years. Early detection of resistant strains as well as prudent use of antibiotics can help to combat the global problem of resistance.
