The current study aimed to determine the antimicrobial resistance. One hundred and five of clinical sample were collected from Central Teaching Hospital of paediatric and Medical city / Educational laboratory, from patients (Male, Female and infant) of age range between. Out of one hundred and five clinical samples were screened, only seventy isolates were collected as 17 identified as Staphylococcus aureus, 12 identified as Klebsiella pneumonia depending on cultural, microscopical and biochemical characteristics. The remaining isolates were identified as Staphylococcus spp., E.coli and Acinetobacter baumannii, pseudomonas aeruginosa, Enterobacter spp., Proteus spp. Regarding to the patients gender, it was found that infant had a tendency to get infection more than males and female when 30 (28.57 %) of patients were males, 33 (31.42 %) females and 42 (40%) infant. Moreover, the age group ≤ 1year were most subjected to the infection of bloodstream infection. Antibiotic susceptibility of bacterial isolates were tested against thirteen of commonly used antibiotic was determined through disc-diffusion method, the result exhibits that the most reliable antibiotic can used as drug is imipenem because mostly all bacterial isolates were sensitive to it and also not used before, in addition to amikacin could be used also as a drug because it given intramuscular and pain so it has low resistance of bacterial isolates.
