Antibiotic resistantorganisms

Methicillin-resistant Staphlycoccus aureus (MRSA) and Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE) are typically nosocomial (hospital acquired) pathogens, which can cause a variety of infections to hospitalized patients.  One of the most important infections caused by MRSA and VRE is a bacteraemia, which occurs when bacteria is present in a patient’s blood.  Publically reporting bacteremias, is one indicator that hospitals can carefully monitor infection control practice.
