BACKGROUND Between 1990 to 1992 and 1993 to 1995 there was a >5-fold increase (16.7% to 89.8%) in vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium isolates as a percentage of all isolates of vancomycin-resistant enterococci on the pediatric units of The New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center (NYH-CMC). A molecular epidemiologic investigation was undertaken to determine the extent to which this increase was associated with the spread of a vanA-containing clone of vancomycin-resistant E. faecium that… CONTINUE READING
