Thereare numerous environmental issues that affect the patients’ health.These factors also referred to as environmental health risks aremainly issues that are outside the patient`s body that influence hisor her healing, wellbeing, and behaviors. For instance, when apatient is subjected to hazardous materials such as expired drugs,polluted air, food that is not good for human consumption, and dirtywater supply, then there are high chances that the patient`s healthwill continue to deteriorate (Kindig,Asada, &amp Booske, 2008).

Whendetermining the environmental factors that influence patients`healing, it is paramount to consider the air quality, food safety andquality, water quality, hazardous substances, waste disposal, housingconditions, and unsafe public spaces. If these issues are not takencare, the patient will have increased the risk of illnesses, disease,or injuries. As a result, there is a need to prevent the patientsfrom environmental risk factors that can result to worsened healthconditions. There is a need to improve the quality of patients’surroundings.

Thisis because a wealthy person has the ability to take good care of hisor her chronic illness conditions by eating healthy and dietbalanced. On the other hand, a poor person may fail to buy themedications live alone eating a balanced diet as prescribed by amedical practitioner.
