Pseudomonas aeruginosa can cause infection in the hospitals. This microorganism is ubiquitous within the environment and is particularly isolated from moist areas such as water and soil. The aim of this study was to determine the hospital cockroaches as the main factor for antibiotic-Resistant P. aeruginosa infections transmission and also to determine antibiogram pattern of P. aeruginosa. Also, the pattern of antibiotic resistance showed that a total 14 (11.2%) of 125 samples were contaminated with P. aeruginosa isolated from cockroaches in hospitals using molecular sieve of polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The overall susceptible of isolated P. aeruginosa strains to antimicrobial agents showed that Amikacin 14 (100%), Ciprofloxacim 14 (100%), Gentamycin 14 (100%), have more susceptibility, respectively. The prevalence of P. aeruginosa in cockroaches' hospitals is high and as a potential factor in transmission of P. aeruginosa.

Key words: Pseudomonas aeruginosa, antibiotic resistance, cockroaches.
