Abstract

In this population- and laboratory-based active surveillance system in 7 states, the incidence of CRE was 2.93 per 100<000 population. Most CRE cases were isolated from a urine source, and were associated with high prevalence of prior hospitalizations or indwelling devices, and discharge to long-term care settings.
