Background/aim: Hospital infections are among the most prominent medical problems around the world. Using proper biocides in an appropriate way is critically important in overcoming this problem. Several reports have suggested that microorganisms may develop resistance or reduce their susceptibility to biocides, similar to the case with antibiotics. In this study we aimed to determine the antimicrobial activity of chlorhexidine digluconate against clinical isolates.
