MRSA bloodstream infection is hospital-acquired problem that is difficult to treat. Bacteria spread to body organs, create multiple loci of infection, and survive in the presence of beta-lactam antibiotics. Study of distribution and antibiogram of MRSA from blood specimens was done in four semesters; i.e. July–December 2014, January–June 2015, July–December 2015, and January–June 2016. Blood of patients suspected for bloodstream infection was drawn aseptically, transferred into liquid medium, and sent to Clinical Microbiology Laboratory of Dr. Soetomo General Hospital. Medium with microbial growth was subcultured on solid medium, and incubated for 18-24 hours in aerobic condition. Identification and susceptibility test were done with BD Phoenix, and interpreted based on Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute 2015. Of total 107 MRSA isolates; 23 isolates (22%) were collected on July–December 2014, 12 isolates (11%) on January–June 2015, 25 isolates (23%) on July–December 2015, and 47 isolates (44%) on January–June 2016. MRSA mostly isolated from internal disease wards (45%). Isolates are sensitive to linezolid (91%), quinupristin-dalfopristin (83%), fosfomycin (82%), and vancomycin (80%). Trend of MRSA bloodstream infection is increasing. Although antibacterial agents against MRSA are available, it is best to prevent MRSA transmissions and infections.
