Question Prevention of Klebsiella Infection

A cluster of 3 cases of nosocomial pneumonia caused by a highly resistant strain of klebsiella pn occurs in a 13-bed ICU. each pt in ICU is in private enclosed room. which of the following infection control measures is most likely to decrease spread of this organism to other pts in ICU?

1- Place infected pts in rooms with at least 6 air exchanges per hour
2- Place infected pts in rooms with negative air pressure
3- Place infected pts in rooms with positive air pressure
4- Promote thorough hand cleansing before and after medical personnel visit each pt
5- Require medical personnel to wear masks when visiting infected pt

I know that 1 and 5 is wrong. Please give the explanation!
