From: Assessing the effect of patient screening and isolation on curtailing Clostridium difficile infection in hospital settings

Fig. 5

Percentage reduction in the number of new C. difficile infection with R 0 = 1.07 over 200 days in the model with rapid testing (a, b) and the model with time delay between sample collection and the release of laboratory results (c, d). Curves in panels (a) and (c) represent the reduction achieved with screening 92.5% of patients at the time of hospital admission, where the effectiveness of patient isolation in preventing infection transmission in hospital is: 100% (black); 90% (red); and 80% (grey). Curves in panels (b) and (d) represent the reduction achieved with screening 92.5% of patients at the time of hospital admission, where the effectiveness of patient isolation in preventing infection transmission is: 90% (red); and 80% (grey). Screening 90% of in-hospital patients with exposure to CDI started on day 100 (shaded area)
