hospitals in Hilla city, from October 2016 to march 2017.Antimicrobial activity test of (apple, palm, garlic
and black raisins) vinegar was determined by MIC and Agar-well diffusion assay, alsoantibiofilm
Formation and ant adherence activity of vinegar against microbes were determined. Result In this study,
172 samples were taken from three Hospitals in Hilla city the result showed that 73 (42.44%) samples
were positive cultured and 99 (57.55%) negative cultured from total samples. Staphylococcus aureus37
