  Indoor air quality is an important determinant of human health and comfort. Airborne bacteria can also contributes to indoor air pollution. The aerobiological survey was carried out in indoor and outdoor environment at 76 hospitals in Amravati. The total 670 air samples were analyzed from indoor and outdoor environment of hospitals by using sedimentation method. The most prominent bacteria isolated were Staphylococcus aureus (29.59%), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (19.72%). The Staphylococcus saprophyticus, Proteus mirabilis, Escherichia coli and Enterobacter aerogenes were in the range of 2-6%. The rest of bacterial pathogens Pseudomonas fluorescence, Proteus vulgaris, Morganella morganii, Citrobacter freundii, Serratia marcescens and Klebsiella pneumoniae were below 1%. Out of all the hospital examined, maternity and children hospitals showed highest (50.68%) bacterial isolates, which were the highest among all types of hospitals.

  The quality of dental unit water is of considerable importance since patients and dental staff are regularly exposed to water and aerosols generated from the dental unit waterlines (DUWLs). Pseudomonas aeruginosa contamination in dental unit waterlines was reported by its origin from incoming local water supplies of the dental clinics. A total of 82 dental unit water samples from 34 dental clinics of Amravati city were collected, out of which 59 water samples were contaminated by P. aeruginosa. The ultrasonic scaler showed maximum 81% contamination of P. aeruginosa then other two hand-pieces, 3 in 1 syringe 68% and air rotor 69%. The dental clinics using distilled water as a source of water for treatment showed 72% P. aeruginosa contamination whereas Undergraduate (UG) dentist’s clinics showed 75% and Postgraduates (PG) dentist’s clinics showed 68% P. aeruginosa in DUWLs water.
