The bathroom can be a dangerous place, but you can make it safer by taking care of a few things.
The bottom of your bathtub should be fairly flat, since soap, water and a slope make a slippery combination. If you find yours is more like a bowl than a plate, consider installing adhesive-backed textured strips.
A standard modern bathtub has a 14″ side, which makes it easy for an adult to step in and out. Other bathtubs, like old-fashioned clawfoots, force you to balance precariously. A sturdy platform step level with the bottom of the tub can make this easier.
You should have a soap dish so you don’t end up with soap on the bottom of the tub or shower, but if possible, recess it, so there’s less chance of hitting it.
Handrails are handy in the bath or shower, but never rely on a standard towel rack; it’s not intended to support that much weight.
Install temperature or pressure controls for your shower valves, to protect you from a sudden scalding if someone flushes the toilet… and position the taps where you can reach them without putting your hand under the stream of water.
All electrical outlets should be protected by ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs), and should be as far from water as is conveniently possible. You shouldn’t be able to reach plugs, switches or fixtures from the tub or shower, and electrical devices shouldn’t be positioned where damp towels hang on top of them.
Prevent slipping on a wet floor with a textured surface, like tile or non-slip area rugs. Use locks you can open from the outside; deadbolts or hooks are out. And never ever bathe with a crocodile.
