So In this age these carers are doing both work i.e job as well as their study. And they attend their college in night. So this hectic schedule of their daily work can be affect on mental health. Hence sometimes carers might be behave rude with the patients. As these carers are students and they are working in the hospital because they need to pay their college fees. Hence they are not able to give their 100 % contribution in the job. Person environment theories can be applicable on this issue.

But in this hospital case most of the carers are students hence they might bot be fit in hospital 's environment. For example, PE fit theories and of vocational choice propose that higher levels of satisfaction and mental and physical well being will occur when there is good fit between person and the environment (e.g Davies & Lofquist, 1984; Holland, 1997). Extensive research supports the proposition that individuals are satisfied with and adjust most easily to jobs that are congruent with their own career relevant personality types(Spokane, 1985; Tinsley,2000). The notion of PE is conceptualised as a general term, under which fall more specific notions of fit.
