Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae epidemiology in Veterans’ Affairs medical centers varies by facility characteristics
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 11 December 2020
This is an epidemiological study of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) in Veterans’ Affairs medical centers (VAMCs). In 2017, almost 75% of VAMCs had at least 1 CRE case. We observed substantial geographic variability, with more cases in urban, complex facilities. This supports the benefit of tailoring infection control strategies to facility characteristics.
