In regions where CRE have been identified but cases remain uncommon, an aggressive approach to prevention is needed to prevent further transmission and widespread emergence of CRE. This will require increased prevention efforts targeting select facilities in the region where CRE are found.

Algorithm with Few Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) Identified: I. Regional Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) Surveillance and Feedback to Healthcare Facilities II. Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) Infection Prevention Measures III. Facilitate Communication Between Healthcare Facilities IV. Education of All Healthcare Facilities about Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) refers to three refers to one refers to two refers to one refers to one
