Drug resistant Gram-negative or positive germs are associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Little is known about the epidemiology of this group of pathogens in Moroccan hospitals. During 1-year period, contamination controls of the surfaces and hands, in Ibn Sina hospital services, were performed from 10/2009 to 06/2010. A total of 470 surface and 135 hands samples were collected in the hospital and antibacterial resistance was examined. This study highlighted the presence of Staphyloccocus aureus, Pseudomonas sp, Klebsiella sp, which were widely disseminated in the inanimate surfaces and on the hands of health professionals and patients. An increased number of antimicrobial resistant isolates showed a reduced susceptibility to third cephalosporin’s generation, quinolones and aminoglycosides. In Moroccan hospital, it is recommended to optimize antimicrobial drug use and to evaluate the microbiologic quality of environment, which it is most likely to be colonized with resistant bacteria.
