Case Entry
CE - FAQ0018

Q: Do I have to enter a case of MRSA bacteraemia or CDI tested within our Trust for a facility (e.g. another NHS or Independent Sector hospital, a GP, a Community hospital) that is not part of the Trust?

A: Yes. All positive specimens tested within your Trust must be entered. Remember when entering the case information it is possible to specify the patient’s location at the time that the specimen was collected. This allows the Trust reporting the specimen to record if the specimen was collected from a healthcare facility outside the Trust.
