2012 CRE Toolkit - Guidance for Control of Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE)

Part 2: Regional CRE Prevention

Regions Where CRE are Common

CRE containment in high-prevalent regions will require the implementation of core and supplemental prevention measures across all acute care and long-term care facilities that provide medical or nursing care (e.g., long-term acute care hospitals and skilled nursing facilities).

Algorithm for Regions where Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) are Common: I. Having Dedicated Personnel to Engage Healthcare facilities in Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) Prevention II. Regional CRE Surveillance and Feedback to Healthcare Facilities III. Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) Infection Prevention Measures IV. Facilitate Communication Between Healthcare Facilities V. Assess Efficacy of Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) Infection Prevention Measures Among Healthcare Facilities refers to 1 and 2 refers to 3 refers to 2
