Table 2 Results of 100 000 stochastic HCW journeys from Patient A to Patient B for various levels of hand hygiene compliance, assuming mean values for p and p' of 0.10 and 0.40, respectively

From: How does healthcare worker hand hygiene behaviour impact upon the transmission of MRSA between patients?: an analysis using a Monte Carlo model
