One bacteremic (4.30%) intensive care unit attained urinary tract infections happened. The average stay of urinary tract infections patients at hospital was 22 days, which was much longer than the stay of the other patients which was just 7 days. The disparity of the rate of mortality was not significant in both types of patients. The main frequently separated organisms were Escherichia coli (30.40%), Kelebsiellapneumoniae (30.40%) & Candida albicans (21.70%).
