How does vancomycin resistant enterococcus spread?
VRE is found in the bowel movements (BMs), urine, and blood of an infected person. VRE is also in body fluids, such as saliva (spit) and vomit, of an infected person. VRE spreads when the germs from an infected person are touched by another person. If people have VRE germs on their hands, and do not wash their hands, the germs can spread. VRE may live on surfaces, such as bedrails, tables, doorknobs, toilets, and remote controls. VRE can live on surfaces for many weeks. If you touch these surfaces before they are cleaned, you may become infected, or spread VRE.
