This Is The Most Dangerous Room In Your House, Do You Know Where It Is?

If you asked people which room in their house is the most dangerous, you’ll probably hear kitchen, utility rooms, stairways, and the garage. All are dangerous, but not the MOST dangerous.  It’s the bathroom that we need to worry about.

According to a new study, slips and falls are one of the leading causes of accidental death in the United States, and bathrooms are where these falls most commonly occur.

In 2008, more than 19,700 older adults died from unintentional fall injuries.

In 2008, about 234,000 people aged 15 and older went to emergency rooms courtesy of injuries occurring in bathrooms. In all, 14 percent of the people ended up in the hospital. Four out of five of these injuries were caused by falls.

Injuries in or around the tub and shower account for over two-thirds of emergency room visits.

So should you get an outhouse and close your bathroom for good?  No just take some extra safety precautions like a rubber bathmat to ensure footing.  Maybe an extra rail in your tub to hold onto in case of a fall.

Maybe no bean burritos after 8pm either . . . not for safety, but definitely for everyone’s well being.
