I dated a nurse in my misspent youth.  I tagged along and noted that much of
her work involved lifting and moving patients.  Over the past 25 years,
people in general have become much heavier I have heard, and OSHA standards
have gotten stricter on maximum loads workers are allowed to hoist.  Would
not these two factors conspire to make the nurses job ever harder?
