From: Decolonization of patients and health care workers to control nosocomial spread of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus:a simulation study

Figure 3

Effect of combining patient isolation with decolonization of health care workers. The two graphs correspond to scenarios with minimum effect of decolonization of HCWs (A) (10% of HCWs are persistently colonized and responsible for 10% of acquisitions ) and maximum (B) (1% of HCWs is persistently colonized and responsible for 50% of acquisitions). The effect of patient decolonization (100% efficacious) is added for comparison.
