Diane Nichols, PT, NCS explains some fall prevention tips in the bedroom and bathroom. Patients can also use some equipment in the bathroom where falls are likely to happen. Bath bench allows a patient to sit on the outside of the tub and scoot across the tub, while a shower bench may be used if the patient is unsteady their feet and no endurance to stand up. Hand held shower are also helpful so patients can spray themselves. Grab bars are important to get in and out of the tub. The height of the toilet seat is usually low, so a raised toilet seat with side handles will help patients in and out of the toilet seat.
