| VRE infection is in hospitals. VRE can cultivate from hospital equipment, doorknobs, and bedrails. It has also been cultured on the hands of hospital personnel. Anyone who frequents hospitals should be considered at risk for carrying VRE.
The symptoms of a VRE infection often depend on where the infection is. If VRE is causing a wound infection, that area of your skin may be red or tender. If one has a urinary tract infection, you may have back pain, a burning sensation when you urinate, or a need to urinate more often than usual. Other symptoms include diarrhea, weakness, fever, and chills.
If you develop a VRE infection, you will be isolated in a private hospital room to reduce the chances of spreading the bacteria to others. When your medical staff is tending to you, they will use extra precautions such as wearing gloves and gowns. VRE infections may be difficult to cure because the bacteria does not respond to many antibiotics. If you have an infection, your doctor will order antibiotics that may be given by mouth or into a vein through an IV (intravenously).
