Infection with carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) or carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae is emerging as an important challenge in health care settings. This threatens to become a problem akin to MRSA. Institutions must be alert for this and other very resistant organisms (ESBL, CTX producing gram negatives, etc.) and not limit foci to C. difficile and MRSA.
