Firstly

Firstly, the hazards that may occur at the residential home that Jack is staying in could be hazard from equipment such as a hot kettle this is a lack of awareness, due to leaving a hot kettle unattended which John may accidentally knock over and scald himself. This therefore is an equipment hazard because Jack injures himself and instead of helping him to recover may add to his problems. Moreover, in care homes there are living rooms which have equipment such as tv etc. It is highly important that there are checks taken out on these items as plugs of TVs may overload which if staff or any of the elderly clients or visitors touch they may be elocuted which may cause bruises and burns to the client. Also, they plug may cause a fire which may mean there may be deaths or serious injuries therefore its so essentially important that safe practise is taken seriously in a care home; also, regular patience must be put in place to ensure that these issues do not occur.
