It is mainly infection which occurs in hospital from one patient to other or by the equipments and instruments used in medical facilities.

But this may occur by urinary tract, so it may be transmitted by sexual intercourse.

Though this is rare.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
