Health Tip: Prevent Bathroom Slipping and Sliding

Health Tip: Prevent Bathroom Slipping and Sliding

04/20/11

(HealthDay News) -- It's easy to suffer an injury in a slippery bathroom, but taking some precautions can get rid of potential hazards.

The Home Safety Council lists these suggestions to reduce slips and falls in the bathroom:

  • Install grab bars next to the toilet and the shower or bathtub.
  • Use a non-slip mat or non-slip strips in the shower or bathtub.
  • Place a bath mat with non-skid backing on the floor just outside the shower or bathtub.
  • Clean up the bathroom floor regularly, and quickly wipe up any spills or moisture.
  • Put a nightlight in the bathroom and in the hallways.
