The aim of study was to determine the bacterial uropathogens and empirical treatment in urinary tract infection in a tertiary institute. The present study was conducted in Department of Microbiology of a tertiary care hospital in North India from July to September 2015.A total of 2200 samples from the outpatient department (OPD) and inpatient department (IPD) were recruited for this study. Urine culture was done by semi-quantitative method. Antibiotic sensitivity was done as per Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) guidelines. Out of 2200 samples 390 were culture positive (17.7%). The prevalence of UTI was more in females (66.66%). Escherichia coli was the predominant causative bacteria (48.41%). Gram negative bacilli isolated showed maximum sensitivity to imipenem, amikacin and nitrofurantoin and Gram positive cocci to vancomycin and linezolid. Imipenem, Amikacin and Nitrofurantoin can be used as empirical treatment in patients with symptoms of UTI.
