Hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP) or nosocomial pneumonia is caused due to the most common pathogens such as gram-negative bacilli and Staphylococcus aureus; whereas, antibiotic-resistant organisms are an important concern. There are two subtypes of HAP: Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) and Healthcare-associated pneumonia (HCAP). Hospital-acquired pneumonia also called as healthcare associated pneumonia, nosocomial or ventilator associated pneumonia is caused due to infections acquired in hospital premise. The disease is different from community acquired pneumonia in that the former is mainly caused due to multi drug resistant microorganisms. Majority of these infections are caused by microorganism’s resistance to conventional drugs. These include methicillin resistant S. aureus (MRSA), multi drug resistant (MDR) P. aeruginosa, Klebsiella and Acinetobacter. Besides prompt antibiotic treatment, supportive measure for organ failure (such as cardiac decompensation) are also important.
