The impact of environmental changes on resources including their storage and use largely depends on the setting in which these resources are being used. For example, in hospitals and nursing homes, there are specific storage rooms, refrigerators which are temperature controlled at all times and therefore don’t specifically undergo environmental changes.
However, in individuals homes environmental changes have a greater impact as the ability to control certain factors such as storage is reduced. an example of this would be if pads were left in a shed from lack of storage in the home or if there were medication prescribed which needed to be stored in a refrigerator. If the medication is not kept in the refrigerator it may not work as well as it had been.
