Moving forward sixteen years, the price has risen to 78 billion dollars and we now have 46 million recipients. Either more people are losing their jobs or they are just becoming lazy because they know they can receive benefits from the government and live off of them for their whole life.

Problem Identification Getting out of bed is one of the dangerous things that the elderly patients do when they are admitted in the hospital. Study conducted by Ambrose, Paul & Hausdorff, (2013) on patient falls reveals that a majority of falls in the elderly patients occur between 0700 and 1900, especially when they are getting out of bed to use the rest room. The cause of their falls is mainly due to unsteady gait, memory loss, confusion that comes with age. Memory loss and vision problems which occurs during old age in the elderly patients puts them at risk for falls. Other factors that can lead to falls are; Presence of throw rugs, psychotropic medications, lack of Vitamin D, and weakness of the lower extremities.
According to Kincaid Victorian Britain was ‘neglectful of the young…’(REFERENCE) During this period children were often forced to work long hours and in poor conditions. Many children took on dangerous job roles that involved working down mines, as chimney sweeps or with heavy machinery in factories. Mortality was high in Victorian Britain, vast amounts of children were orphans and whilst there were laws in place to protect animals, no current legislation was in place to protect the children of Britain. However this was all to change when the 1873 case of Mary Ellen in the United States went world-wide and led to the evolution of child protection in Britain.
Fire: Fire is another example of a risk when you are working with electronic equipment so it is important that you know what actions you have to take to prevent the fire from happening. Two ways you can prevent this are, stopping the components from overheating and preventing electrical problem e.g. problem with the hardware or problem with a plug. To stop a fire you should always have a fire extinguisher nearby so that it can stop this life and death matter. Electrostatic discharge (ESD): electrostatic discharge is another example of a risk this is when an electrically charged object meets each other by causing sparks. This can be dangerous because it can cause a fire or it can electrocute the user if they are near the components.
From the safety data sheet, the main health hazard of potassium carbonate is to cause serious eye and skin irritation (Armand 2015). To control the hazard of the potassium carbonate, protective gloves and eye glasses are required, also dust masks should be worn to prevent breathing or swallowing dusts when handling the powder form. 6.2.2 Electrical hazard Electrical equipment such as generator and turbines pose the risk of electrical fire, the most common cause of this being leakage of lubricant oil. (F.E. global) The leaking lube oil is ignited by the hot surface of the steam or gas turbine and causes fire.
During 1910, the country was progressing quickly towards a greater form of mass production and increasingly dangerous working conditions. People labored in squalor like in the “below ground bakeries,” where rat droppings covered rolling tables and children were “coughing beside ovens.” Progressives, unionists, and socialists called for different types of reform, and Tammany Hall opposed them; the political machine sent strikebreakers and stalled legislation that would benefit the workers. Then, on March 25, 1911, the Triangle Waist Company factory caught fire at the end of the day shift. About 146 men and women died in the Asch Building.
Such dwellings are overcrowded, thus creating an unsafe living environment due to various reasons such as, lack of space and major exposure to many germs that can cause illnesses amongst many.

For instance, 12 adults slept in a room some 13 feet across, most apartments are about 325 square feet. These tight quarters were not only undesirable, but they allowed the spread of disease.
Working on the burn and wound unit which is a step-down from the burn ICU, the patient population varies in age with the youngest aged 17 to a patient that was 106. People get burned through many mechanisms such as fire, hot liquid, or electricity and falls are a small reason why the patients get burned. Falls play a small role as to why our patients get burned. Our focus however, is fall prevention once they reach us. Patients who get burned are considered fall risks for multiple reasons; from the opioids they will receive while staying with us, to mobility issues due to their injuries.
