Public comments for: Proposed Amendment to Reportable Diseases and Conditions and Laboratories (Articles 11 and 13 of the NYC Health Code)


With respect to the proposed rule to require laboratories to report carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), we would ask that the definition of CRE be unambiguous and that the rule clearly indicate which results are expected. This comment is offered in response to ambiguity that has been noted in some definitions provided by other agencies.
