As a nurse practicing within a family practice, you are interviewing a 55-year-old woman who is an executive assistant at a local law firm, where she has worked for 9 years. She has a 7-year history of respiratory illness, which occurs several times throughout the year, not seemingly connected to the changes in season. She does not use tobacco products in any form. During your questions regarding her home and work environments, she reports that she enjoys working adjacent to the courthouse in a building over 100 years old because it is such a contrast to her brand-new home on a local golf course. She has had respiratory illness for seven years. It happens several times a year and doesn’t seem to have anything to do with the seasons. She doesn’t use any kind of tobacco at all. When you ask her about her home and work environments, she says that she likes working in a building that is over 100 years old next to the courthouse because it is so different from her brand-new home on a nearby golf course. When describing the health of her coworkers, she indicates, “We all share illnesses, which seem to affect everyone else during the year; we just seem to be sicker more often!”
