Abstract

Introduction: Carbapenem resistant Acinetobacter baumannii (A. baumannii) strains are challenging topics for hospitals. We determined the antibiotic susceptibilities and genetic resistance mechanisms of 135 A. baumannii isolates from Giresun State Hospital, Turkey between January 2013 and September 2014.
