A nosocomial epidemic model with infection of patients due to contaminated rooms

  • Received: 01 May 2014 Accepted: 29 June 2018 Published: 01 April 2015

  • A model of epidemic bacterial infections in hospitals is developed. The model incorporates the infection of patients and the contamination of healthcare workers due to environmental causes. The model is analyzed with respect to the asymptotic behavior of solutions. The model is interpreted to provide insight for controlling these nosocomial epidemics.
