infections in hospitals with environmental contamination.


with respect to some essential parameters is performed. It is shown that the infection would go to extinction if the basic reproduction number is less than unity and would persist if it is greater than unity. Numerical simulations indicate that environmental cleaning is the most important intervention to control the infection, which emphasizes the effect of environmental contamination in MRSA infections. It is also important to highlight the importance of effective antimicrobial stewardship programmes, increase active screening at admission and subsequent isolation of positive cases, and treat patients quickly and efficiently.
