Calculating Rates

The VRE rate is calculated as a rate per 1,000 patient days. The “total patient days” represents the sum of the number of days during which services were provided to all inpatients during the given time period.

The VRE rate is calculated as follows:
Number of new hospital-acquired VRE cases in our facility X 1000 / Total number of patient days (for 3 months)
