i am an infectious diseases physician and have never heard of such a
thing. are you sure you don't mean vancomycin resistant enterococcus?
that has recently become a problem in the hospital setting. or
methicillin resistant staph aureus...which has been a problem for

either i am real behind or you have mixed bugs.
