Statement of a problem â„– 42259


So that your grandmother can listen to A Prairie Home Companion, you take her bedside radio to the hospital where she is staying. You are required to have a maintenance worker test it for electrical safety. Finding that it develops 120 V on one of its knobs, he does not let you take it up to your grandmother’s room. She complains that she has had the radio for many years and nobody has ever gotten a shock from it. You end up having to buy a new plastic radio. Is this fair? Will the old radio be safe back in her bedroom?
