13. So fix the stairs already.
"He ran the data on the locations where ambulances picked up patients with fall injuries, and discovered that a single building in central Camden sent more people to the hospital with serious fallsfifty-seven elderly in two yearsthan any other in the city."

Sound to me like there are structural problems in that building. Maybe they need an elevator or something. If falls are that prevalent, then there is a problem in the building's design.
