Deterministic and stochastic mathematical models were formulated to investigate the roles that environmental contamination and the presence of volunteers played in the dynamics of hospital infections in China. Semi-stochastic simulation was used to estimate some of the parameters by fitting the observed data and investigating the impacts of interventions such as cleaning, hand hygiene and isolation of admitted MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) patients on mean prevalence of… CONTINUE READING
