    What measures can I take to avoid a bathroom fall?


    Slips, trips and falls around the home can cause a nasty injury. One of the most susceptible rooms for sustaining a slip injury in the home is the bathroom. A bathroom fall is likely to occur from wet flooring or slippery bath surfaces.

    Why are you more likely to have a slip, trip or fall in the bathroom?

    The main reason why slips, trips and falls happen much more in the bathroom is down to the amount of water used in this room. Whether you have a bath or shower water is often splashed onto the floor which if not mopped up can create a slip hazard.

    As well as this, electrical items such as razors are often used in the bathroom and if you combine this with water it can cause you to have a nasty slip, trip or fall especially if you electrocute yourself.

    How to prevent a slip, trip or fall in the bathroom?

    Firstly, make sure you have a bath mat; these are simple yet very effective at absorbing water that drips off you when you get out of the bath or shower thus reducing the slip hazards. Also, do not store any electrical items in a place where they can fall into water. Try to put them away into a cabinet to keep them safe and when you do use them avoid being near any water to avoid an injury far worse than a simple slip, trip or fall.

    Also, to avoid sustaining a fall injury in the bathroom invest in the rubber mats that stick on the bottom of your bath and/or shower. These are used as a non slip surface to avoid sustaining a nasty slip injury as the surface of a bath when wet is very slippery.
