Antibiotics are microbial products naturally produced in the stationary phase of the growth curve. These are known to kill or inhibit the growth of susceptible infectious microorganisms, so determination of antibiotic susceptibility can help in clinical treatment of infections. E.coli, S. aureus, and Pseudomonas were used as test organisms, isolated from rural habitations of West Nimad, District. Khargone (M.P.). Authors found that S. aureus, E. coli and Pseudomonas are multidrug resistant bacteria but highly susceptible for Ertapenem (34 mm zone of inhibition) and Levofloxacin (30 mm zone of inhibition) so these antibiotics should be used for the treatment of infections caused by the said bacteria and early recovery of patients. Regular monitoring of antimicrobial susceptibility in the Nimad area may be helpful in recovery from these infections.
