This is the rate and number of cases of bloodstream infections caused by Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) and Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus (VRE) that patients got while staying in the hospital. The rate of MRSA and VRE infection is measured using inpatient days, taking into account the hospital's size. The indicator measures the number of MRSA and VRE cases over the total number of days that all patients spent in-hospital for the reporting period. A lower rate is better and a lower number of cases is better.
