This study aimed to assess antibiotics resistance and antibacterial action of silver nanoparticles against Staphylococcus aureus isolated from wound infection. A total of 100 samples of wound swab existed calm since wound patients who stayed the Al-Hillah, Teaching Hospital (wound unit) in, Babylon province, Iraq. S aureus was recognized biochemically and morphologically. A whole of 30(30%) of the whole specimens tested confident for S.aureus. Available of 30 S.aureus isolates, 8(26.6 percent) were MRSA. Antibiotic susceptibility for 8 antibiotics for MRSA that appeared to Penicillin G and Cefoxitin was tested, and all isolates were resistant (100percent), Were susceptible to Rifampin, Tetracycline, and Ciprofloxacin (62.5percent) Clindamycin sensitivity remained experimental in 75% isolates. Resistance to Erythromycin remained establish in approximately 62.5 percent of the population. Gentamycin resistance was found in 50% of the isolates. The antibacterial activity of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) alongside S.aureus demonstrates extreme broad-range antibacterial act in contradiction of recognized bacteria, with an rise inhibition zone diameter related to nanoparticle concentration The MIC of Ag NPs ranged from 50 to 100g/ml, while the MBC ranged from 100 to 200g/ml. Ag NPs is suggested as an effective anti-MRSA alternative. This experiment discovered that Ag NPs is highly recommended as an alternative anti-MRSA agent with significant inhibitory and antibacterial effect due to the methicillin resistant strains' high rate of resistance to Penicillin G and Cefoxitin (100%), Erythromycin (62.5%), and Gentamycin resistance (50%).
