Fig. 2

Time of infection and time-to-exposure stratification. This figure shows the time of CDI acquisition, post-exposure length of stay and overall length of stay for patients. Each line represents one patient. a Shows all nosocomial CDI cases sorted by infection time in days from admission. The x-axis shows overall length of stay, while the length of a line signifies the post-exposure length of stay. b Shows one corresponding control for the cases in a which meets the time-to-exposure criterion, that is, they have stayed at least until the infection time of the corresponding case. For illustrative purposes only one of the four matched controls are shown. Figures are truncated at 100 days
