Walk in Bathtub: Safe Tub Design & Bathroom Upgrades
The posted an article back in 2011, disclosing that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shared surprising at home accident statistics. As it turns out, each year around 235,000 people over 15 years of age are taken to the E.R due to injuries sustained in the bathroom of their home.
Almost 15% of those visits result in over-night stays, and more than a third of those clinic-bound trips are due to mishaps while showering or bathing. Jarring stats considering many of us shower 365 days of the year.
Just two years ago, show that slips and falls in the bathtub are the main reasons for serious injury among the elderly. Our Safetub Design service specializes in providing walk-in tubs.
