To determine the extent of antibiotic resistance in New Jersey, in 1991 the New Jersey State Department of Health (NJSDOH) initiated a hospital laboratory isolate-based surveillance system for antimicrobial-resistant bacteria.
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.
In New Jersey, laboratory-based surveillance for VRE and other antibiotic-resistant isolates has been developed through collaboration between the NJSDOH, hospitals, and infectious disease professionals in the state and because of modification of reporting regulations.
