organisms and executing complete and coherent infection prevention measures. Methods: Using the "front warning" system for MDRO in the hospital include inspection paging system, patient care real-time SOS warning and disposal systems, electronic medical order system(including outpatient, emergency, hospitalization and nursing) for rendering prompt isolation, the colors of wrist strap, medical record charts, and bed head label. Meanwhile, the "back-end monitoring" system includes timely summary

Results: For example with VRE, its new detection and causing healthcareassociated infection trends. Conclusions: The paper shows that through complete and coherent prevention measures and supplement of technology system, we can detect and control the spread of MDROs within hospital timely and ensure the infection prevention measures execute efficiently. Purpose: Staphylococcus aureus (SA) is the main pathogen isolated from patients with puerperal mastitis that frequently occurs among breastfeeding Figure. Detection of new trends in VRE from 2010 to 2013.
