Hospitals submit to NJSDOH monthly a surveillance report form, which includes the number of in-patient bloodstream isolates of these organisms and MRSA isolates from any body site.
Because this surveillance system is isolate-based, it does not directly measure changes in the rate of infection in persons, and NJSDOH has used this system primarily for sentinel purposes to guide further investigation.
