A total. of two hundred., and fifty urine samples are gathered from hospitals of Thi-Qar governorate over a six-month period, these samples were collected from Al- Nasiriyah teaching hospital, Al-Hussein Teaching Hospital, and Suq Al-Shuyoukh general hospital. Twenty-five Proteus mirabilis isolates were identified using their morphology, microscopic features, biochemistry, confirmatory APi 20 E tests, and VITEK II system. The twenty-five isolates were examined for antibiotic resistance against 18 different antibiotics. It was found that isolates' levels of antibiotic resistance varied. Amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, azithromycin, nitrofurantoin, and ampicillin were all reported to have high resistance among isolates (100 %) while the resistance to activity of trimethoprim, tetracycline, and cefotaxime was 96%. The resistance to nalidixic acid, cefepime, ceftriaxone, ciprofloxacin, ceftazidime, amikacin, cefixime, gentamicin, norfloxacin, imipenem, and meropenem were (88, 88, 84, 76, 72, 68, 68, 56, 52, 8, 16) % respectively.
