The emergence of antibiotic resistant organisms and their spread in the community has been a subject of increasing concern in recent years. Antibiotic resistant organisms are more frequently found in hospital environment and is attributed to misuse of antibiotics. Staphylococci are found to develop antibiotic resistance more readily than others. The methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) first appeared in 1961. MRSA have caused outbreaks of colonization and infection in intensive care unit and other special units in hospital throughout the world. We report strains of MRSA isolated from the patients, staffs and hospital environment of a tertiary medical care center, Kathmandu, Nepal. This constitute the first communication of its kind from this country.
