CDC data show that in the first half of 2012, 4% of U.S. hospitals and 18% of nursing homes had at least one case of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, a deadly bacteria resistant to even the strongest antibiotics. The CDC urged facilities to stop the spread of the bacteria by enforcing infection-control policies, grouping CRE patients together, alerting hospitals when these patients are transferred and using antibiotics judiciously.
