Bath safety is a critical concern given that more than 80 percent
of home accidents occur in the bathroom, which is considered
to be the most dangerous room in the house according to the National
Moreover, Bath safety is a service that spans across multiple,
major patient groups, such as geriatric, bariatric and mobility patients,
to name a few. This means that providing bath safety involves
addressing a number of very different and distinct patient requirements
Bath safety solutions include products such as grab bars, which
should be strategically located in and around the bathing area,
as well as around the toilet. Bathing solutions range from simple
solutions such as bathing stools or benches that patients can use in
conjunction with a handheld shower to protect against falls, all the
way to complex transfer chairs and lifts to help patients get in and
out showers and tubs. And, of course, there are general items, such
as non-slip material or strips and similar household items.
The result is a cornucopia of patient-specific safety items that
patients truly need, and that can be sold on a retail basis, thus buttressing
provider cash flow in the face of declining Medicare reimbursement.
Here are some great solutions that can help you protect
your patients — and your bottom line:
