Bath Safety

Approximately 80 percent of home accidents occur in the bathroom, but most of those accidents can be prevented with the right safety products. That statistic demonstrates that there is plenty of opportunity for a provider to grow its business by stocking bathroom safety products.

The key is to offer a wide array of solutions that can fit clients’ unique needs. Talk to the patient or caregiver to get a solid sense of the challenges and situation.

Because bathing is universal and the Baby Boomer demographic increasingly needs these solutions, the retail appeal of bath safety is clear. But that also means big box stores are now part of the competition and they aren’t shy about discounting.

To compete, HME retailers need to lean hard on their reputation for being knowledgeable, convenient, personalized service and quality products. To help you maintain your expertise, here are some new and bedrock bath safety product offerings:
