Figure 3

The effects of different control measures on Clostridium difficile in the simulated hospital. The ratio of patients colonized with C. difficile when discharged compared to new admissions (left Y axis, points) are shown along with associated incidence of symptomatic disease per 1000 hospital bed days (right Y axis, crosses) across a wide range of the four tested control measures: reducing antimicrobial prescription (top-left), improved sanitation and hygiene (top-right), administering pro-biotics (bottom-left) and reducing the average length of stay (bottom-right). Each point is the average value of a 1-year simulation.
