Gram negative bacterias which belong to Enterobacteriaceae family which is critically important as a matter of human health, are comperatively prevalent in nature and foods. Infections formed by bacterias resistant to antibiotics significantly cause mortality and economical losses. Sensitivities of gram-negative bacterias isolated from miscellaneous samples to sulbactamampicillin, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazol and ticarcillin-clavulanic acid were analysed. In this study, Proteus is primary isolated microorganism with % 52,08. It was determined that Proteus types are proportionally 86,66% sensitive to Trimethoprim-Sulfamethoxazol and 76% resistant to Sulbactam-Ampicillin . Citrobacter is the secondary isolated microorganism (31,25%). It was determined that Citrobacter types were 86,66% sensitive to Trimethoprim-Sulfamethoxazol and % 73,3 resistant to Sulbactam-Ampicillin. Providencia types which are thirdly isolated microorganism (16%), For Providencia types, Trimethoprim-Sulfamethoxazol were determined as the most effective antibiotic again with 86,66% sensitivity. Resistance to Sulbactam- Ampicillin was however, found to be 76%. In conclusion, it is very important to conduct sensitivity tests in choosing antibiotics for chemotherapy of infections. Trimethoprim-Sulfamethoxazol is recommended in the empiric treatment of urinary tract infections in our environment
