Bathroom Safety Tips

Bathroom safety products offer consumers and patients independence at home. Normal daily living activities can be once again performed in private without assistance from family members or caregivers. Comfort, safety and self-confidence are now restored with the many products available.

How To Make The Bathroom a Safe Place


Install a bathtub or shower with a floor surface made of non-skid material.



Add adhesive strips or appliqués with a slightly abrasive surface to the bathtub or the floor or the shower stall.



Use a non-skid mat while you are in the tub or shower, and consider using another one on the bathroom floor to prevent you from slipping as you leave the bathtub.



Install grab bars on the walls. These are designed to help you keep your balance as you enter or leave the tub or shower. Grab bars must be attached to studs or other structural supports in the wall.



You can also install a grab rail as well. It attaches to the side of the bathtub.



Consider using a transfer bench for elderly or injured persons. This is designed to fit securely over the tub and help keep your balance as you step in or out of the tub or shower.



Raised toilet seats and safety frames help the consumer use their home toilet safely and comfortably, often without caregiver or family assistance.



Use a hand-held shower attachment for better control of water flow when washing your hair or shaving your legs.



Use a shower seat or chair for elderly persons who would like more stability. Many models come with adjustable legs and slip resistant feet.



Hot water temperature setting should not exceed more than 120 degrees Fahrenheit (49 degrees Celsius). Have a qualified person check this for you.



Install a ground fault circuit interrupter on bathroom outlets to stop the unsafe flow of electricity. Don't leave items like hair dryers or electric razors plugged in when not in use, they still poses a hazard.
