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 
years....vancomycin resistant s. aureus is another thing all together.

either i am real behind or you have mixed bugs.
