Table 6 Parameter combinations (numbered 1-27) simulating varying levels of antimicrobial stewardship (Cols 2 and 3) and effective ward-room terminal cleaning (Col 4). The risk-level scenarios in Column 3 (numbered 1-3) are given for reference alongside the corresponding resulting change from median baseline nosocomial colonizations and infections (given in TableĀ 4). Specific distributions of antibiotic-risk level probabilities for each risk scenario are given in TableĀ 3
