The low incomes, unemployment, poor employment and poor housing can lead to poor health. According to Wilkinson (1996), the widest gaps in health inequalities were to be found in those countries that had the widest gaps in incomes. It indicates that lack of income can cause poor health. For example: it can generate social stresses which can cause much psychological stresses that result in illness, and the poor have poorer access to have a comprehensive medical services. Also, although the poor want to modify the health-damaging behaviours, they are confined by the major resource of money (Kaplan et al., 1996).
Hence, this study attempts to shed light on the three organizational behaviour constructs which will improve our understanding and will help future researches. A conceptual model is offered and few propositions are stated. Faheem, M. A., & Mahmud, N. (2015).Applying the equity theory at public sector hospitals, present study aimed to investigate the impact of organizational justice on nurses’ deviant behavior at workplace and also the job satisfaction.

Using information from staff workers, patients, and chart review all combine will be a better tool in assessing patient safety in medical settings. One practical implications of the study is the suggestion of the use of incident reports as educational material for health workers and medical students. This technique would positivity impact health worker by increasing their consciousness regarding patient safety. Another practical implication is the proposal that medical centers in general should always use more than one type of incident detection. A combinations of sources of information from hospital staff members an d patients should be use in order to achieve a more accurate
Its idea is that class differences are the result of human biological differences because more healthy, more chances to move up the social ladder of class, or in other words, social mobility is depend on health. The health determines people’s class position because illness may make disability and lead to unemployment. It is very slight in the state of later middle age men. However, it is just a few of people get ill and suffers from the downward mobility. Therefore, it cannot show the whole picture of the class difference in health.
When Florence Nightingale developed the environmental theory, she used statistical data to correlate environmental cleanliness to infection rates among patients and used the theory to advocate for better training among nurses. Therefore, the paper by Brown et al., (2008) agrees well with the environmental theory. From this paper, it is clear that cleanliness in the hospital environment is a practical step that nurses take to reduce infections and improve health. The paper also highlights the need for proper policies and supervision protocols in order to improve cleanliness in the hospital environment. The authors conclude that hygiene and clean environments are ways of managing risks and promoting nursing autonomy by ensuring that nurses are
