Table 7 Increasing levels of HCW basic compliance with non-quarantined patients (Column 5) combined with select parameter combinations from TableĀ 6 (Scenarios 6, 15, 18, 22, and 25). The five selected scenarios varied levels of antimicrobial stewardship and ward-room terminal cleaning using a baseline level of HCW compliance with quarantined patients (60%). (Note that the decimal place in the scenario number indicates the varying levels of HCW basic compliance with non-quarantined patients while the whole number represents the original scenario number from TableĀ 6)
