This study aimed to determine bacterial type related to healthcare associated infection in wastewater Sanglah Hospital. Four water samples were taken in Wastewater Treatment Plant Installation Mahotama and IGD. The samples then procced with cultured, identification and sensitivity test. The bacteria that cause infections associated with health care are found in hospital wastewater is Aeromonas hydrophila, Bacillus sp., Enterobacter cloacae, Enterobacter Sakazaki, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella oxytoca, Kluyvera sp., Serratia liquefaciens, Serratia odorifera, Serratia plymuthica, Serratia rubidea, Raoultella ornithinolytica. From the results of the sensitivity test showed the presence of varying levels of resistance. All tested bacteria are not sensitive to Ampicillin, however it sensitive to Imipenem. Serratia liquefaciens and Kluyvera sp. are the most resistant bacteria in this study. Bacteria that found in the given treatment sample indicate the treatment is lacking.
