describe the routes by which an infection can get into the body
Weegy: There are four main routes for infections to enter the body: 1.Down the respiratory tract into the lungs. Coughs, cold, influenza and other common airborne infections are contracted in this fashion. 2. Breaks in the skin. [ One of the many functions of the skin is to act as a barrier against infection. Anything that penetrates the skin, or for that matter the mucous membrane that lines the mouth or nose, provides a route for infection to enter. Typically, bites, scratches, puncture wounds by needles etc increase the risk of infection. 3.Down the digestive tract. Food, drink or other infected products can be swallowed and infect the stomach or bowels. Most people have experienced an 'upset stomach', which reveals itself in the form of diarrhea and or vomiting. 4.Up the urinary and reproductive systems. The infectious agent may remain localized or may enter the blood stream. Sexually transmitted diseases most commonly infect the genitals. HIV, the AIDS virus, is carried in bodily fluids and can be transmitted in saliva, seminal fluid, or blood. ] (More)

explain situations that may require additional supports necessary for safer moving and handling
Weegy: The Health and Safety Executive guidance states: 1. [ [ The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992, which implement the Manual Handling of Loads Directive, came into effect on 1 January 1993 under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, and enable UK legislation to implement a European Community Directive on the manual handling of loads. They apply to all manual handling activity with a risk of injury. 2. The Regulations impose duties on employers, self-employed people and employees. Employers must avoid all hazardous manual handling activity where it is reasonably practicable to do so. If it is not, they must assess the risks in relation to the nature of the task, the load, the working environment and the capabilities of the handler and take appropriate action to reduce the risk to the lowest level reasonably practicable. Employees must follow appropriate work systems introduced by their employer to promote safety during the handling of loads. ] (More)

the impact of using services for someone with mental ill health
Weegy: Many forms of mental illness first appear when the person is in their late teens or early twenties. [ Whether it’s depression, an anxiety disorder, or a less common condition such as bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, the first episode is likely to occur when the person is still living with their family. Even if they have moved out of home or are older, the mental illness may not only be distressing for them, it may affect others too. Mental illness often has a ‘ripple effect’ on families, creating tension, uncertainty, troubled emotions and big changes in how people live their lives. Different family members are likely to be affected in different ways. These effects on the family are sometimes not acknowledged by health professionals. Families may also take on the role of day-to-day care. This often happens with little training or support, or acknowledgment of their own needs and mental health. When families are accepted as partners in care and do receive training and support, there is strong evidence that this leads to better outcomes for everyone involved. Sometimes families are not listened to by health professionals. ‘Patient confidentiality’ may be given inappropriately as a reason for this. Yet families are often the main support for people affected by mental illness, and have a right to be treated as ‘partners in care’. They need information about the illness and treatment provided, and about training and support to help themselves as well as the person who is ill. ] (More)

positive impacts on people with mental ill health
Weegy: Although mental health problems are very common – affecting around one in four people in Britain – stigma and discrimination towards people with mental health problems is still very common and there are a lot of myths about what different diagnoses [ mean. There is also a lot of controversy about the way mental health problems are diagnosed, what causes them, and which treatments are most effective. However, despite these challenges, it is possible to recover from a mental health problem and live a productive and fulfilling life. It is important to remember that having a mental health problem is not a sign of weakness. Never be ashamed of having bad days, weeks or even months – because they show your inner strength, even if you can’t see it yourself at the time. What are the most common mental health problems? Some of the most commonly diagnosed forms of mental health problem are described below. Common diagnoses Depression Depression lowers your mood, and can make you feel hopeless, worthless, unmotivated and exhausted. It can affect sleep, appetite, libido and self-esteem. It can also interfere with daily activities and, sometimes, your physical health. This may set off a vicious cycle, because the worse you feel, the more depressed you are likely to get. Depression can be experienced at different levels e.g. mild or severe, and can be related to certain experiences; for example, postnatal depression occurs after childbirth. Depression is often associated with anxiety. (See depression for more information.) see also.. ] (More)
