Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcus (VRE) Bacteremia rates

Find our Fact Sheets here. These can be printed as a handy reference guide.

Enterococci are bacteria that normally live in the bowel without causing disease. VRE is not a disease but a type of Enterococcal bacteria that are not eliminated by simple antibiotics. If these bacteria get into your bloodstream then this would be called a bacteremia or a bloodstream infection. Bacteria should never be found in your bloodstream.

Here are our VRE Bacteremia statistics, presented according to the guidelines given by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-term Care (MoHLTC).
