BACKGROUND Patient-to-patient transmission through contaminated medical equipment may be the principal route of nosocomial blood-borne infections globally. Quantifying cross infection risks could facilitate efforts to ensure safe injections in developing countries. METHOD A mathematical model was developed to evaluate the risk of cross infection due to unsafe injections. The model was applied to immunization programmes with a fixed number of injections and in which unsterile needle and… CONTINUE READING
