Abstract

We report a reduction in the vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) rate from a peak of 1.5 cases per 1,000 admissions (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.0-2.1) in August 2012 to 0.5 per 1,000 admissions (95% CI: 0.3-1.0) by January 2015, associated with a bundle of interventions. Infect. Control Hosp. Epidemiol. 2015;37(1):107-109.
