I am a survivor of MRSA. I had a double bowel resection and contracted it in the hospital. It was a new anti-biotic resistant strain also. I spent a month and half in a coma in ICU. Everything they gave me was "experimental". Not sure exactly what all it was, but I know that I can never have the same medicine again. I actually died for 7 minutes. They put me in some special roto-bed. When I finally came to, couple months later, the doctors told me that they had no idea why I was still alive. They told me that it was NOT any of the medicine or anything else that they did. I had a doctor from Atlanta flown in to Columbus Ohio to treat me. Yep! The CDC was in charge of treating me. I survived but have alot of complications.

Hmm...no more MRSA than usual at the MED or Methodist here in Memphis.

I live in Nashville and work at Vanderbuilt and I have heard nothing about the CDC being called in anywhere in Middle Tennessee. Often times, there may be a CDC consultant called in on odd situations but as far as a huge CDC call up, I would say your source should re-check their facts.

Enteroccocci are bacteria that are normally present in the human intestines and in the female genital tract and are often found in the environment.
These bacteria can sometimes cause infections. Vancomycin is an antibiotic that is often used to treat infections caused by enterococci. In some instances, enterococci have become resistant to this drug and thus are called vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE).
Most VRE infections occur in hospitals.
