The aim of the study was to analyze the different types of pneumonia (HCAP and HAP) caused by Acinetobacter baumannii in patients hospitalized in pulmonology and internal ward of Masovian Specialist Hospital in Radom (MSS) in 2012 to 2016. The incidence and drug sensitivity of these non-fermenting rods were evaluated and the compliance of anti-microbial procedure with the algorithm of the guidelines in applicable recommendations estimated. This should result in determining the local patterns of resistance and verifying therapeutic procedures in accordance with the assumptions of hospital antibiotic policy. In addition, the study examined the effectiveness of empiric and target therapy according to the clinical condition of the patient. We also compared the effectiveness of the eradication of A. baumannii with the aggravating factors of the patient condition.

Key words: Acinetobacter baumannii, antibiotic resistance, multi-resistant strains (MDR XDR).
