The neonatal period is the most vulnerable period of human life. A neonate is 500 times more likely to die on the first day of life compared to a child who one month age (30). Similarly, neonatal disease pattern is a sensitive indicator of availability, use, and effectiveness of mother and child health services in the community (31). This indicates that neonatal death is one of the health problems in developing countries and newborn survival has no improvement (32).
After following up about 10 years later there were 250 participants who developed heart failure and a total of 788 participants who died during the follow-up time period. The results from the study brought the conclusion that there is a direct association between the amount of elderly’s physical activity and the risk of heart failure (see Appendix B for a graph showing the full study results). The more that elderly participate in physical activity, the more risk of heart failure reduces in those individuals (Kraighter-Krainer, et al., 2013). This study directly indicates that a lack of physical activity in elderly and people of all ages increases the likelihood of cardiovascular
Life expectancy Life expectancy is an average number of years that a person can expect to live in "full health" by taking into account years lived in less than full health due to disease and/or injury (WHOStat 2006). Crude Death/Mortality Rate (CDR) Crude Death Rate or Crude Mortality Rate is the total number of deaths to residents in a specified geographic area such as a country divided by the average total population for the same geographic area for a specified time period and multiplied by 100,000. The term crude means it does not account for age, sex or other variables in any aspects of death. CRUDE DEATH RATE=(Total deaths per year)/(Average Total population of that year)

The prevailing rate is only expected to increase, so with each additional year more money could be made from these sales. Even if the prevailing rate remains unchanged within five years, Medical Associates could make $1,365,255 from holding onto the 25 acres and then the separate 200 acres. The thing about waiting for five years is that Medical Associates will have to pay taxes on 200 acres of undeveloped land that would be a total of $121,550.63. Recommendation Holding onto the land for five years then selling it will generate $200,000 less compared to selling the land to the real estate investor for $1,500,00 as soon as it is acquired. This $1,500,000 can help pay for any debts Medical Associates has or possibly start planning for upgrading their current facilities.

Of the staggering numbers of 700,000 to 1.7 million people who contract a HAI during their hospital stay, more than 50% are preventable. Each year the costs for HAI are estimated at $9.8 billion dollars (MCELROY). The contraction of an infection may prolong the length of hospital stay for a patient which once again makes them more susceptible to obtain another HAI. COST OF CHG BATHING.
