Week 2 Assignment: Environmental Exposures and Human Health
Objective: To explain and evaluate the ways that environmental exposures affect human health.
After reading the chapters assigned this week and viewing the infographic on preventable causes of foodborne illness from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, address the following scenario:
Imagine you are the healthcare administrator of a 180-bed facility. Susan is a kitchen assistant who works in your healthcare facility. Susan was recently in contact with a family member who has influenza, then came to work with severe sniffles and sneezes. She also felt hot, and then cold, and had a few body aches. Susan believes she cannot afford to stay home, so she went to work and did not tell anyone how she was feeling. Susan assisted in the preparation of three meals before the chef noticed her physical condition and sent her home.
In a one- to two-page paper in APA Style, address the following:
- What contributing factors put your patients and other staff members at risk?
- What food preparation practices that Susan was involved in put the patients and other staff members at risk?
- Which of the top four contributing factors has Susan committed by coming to work as a kitchen assistant in your healthcare facility?
Include a title page and a reference list. You must cite and reference the infographic and at least one other source. You may use your text as a source.
Remember to always cite your sources using APA Style 7th edition format. Be sure to support your paper with references from the week’s readings and other relevant resources.
