Infections of this type can occur in a hospital, nursing home, rehabilitation center, outpatient clinic, diagnostic laboratory, or another clinical setting. In the clinical setting, infection is transferred to susceptible patients through a variety of mechanisms. Infection is transferred by health care workers in addition to contaminated equipment, bed linens, or air droplets. The illness may have originated in the environment; however, the source of the infection cannot be determined.
