Bathroom Fall Prevention Checklist

How fall-proof is your bathroom? Compare against our checklist:

 

☐ Is the path from the bedroom to the bathroom well lit?

☐ Are there grab bars near the toilet and in the shower and bathtub?

☐ If you have difficulty standing in the shower, do you use a shower seat?

☐ Are spills cleaned up immediately?

☐ Do your bathmats have slip-resistant backing?

☐ Do you remove soap build-up in your shower/bathtub to avoid slipping?

☐ Can you reach soap in the shower without bending down or turning too far around?

☐ Do you have a raised toilet seat if you have difficulty standing up and sitting down?
