Bathroom Safety Accessories Reduce the Risk of Falls
Bathroom safety accessories give patients and medical staff peace of mind while reducing the risk of slips and falls. Make trips to the bathroom a little easier for older or convalescent patients by stocking up on grab bars, shower seats and portable toilets from Quill's extensive line of bathroom safety products.
Safety Accessories Reduce Slips and Falls in the Shower
For patients in hospitals or nursing homes, especially those with weakness or mobility issues, the prospect of taking a shower can be a little frightening. Showers can pose slip and fall hazards for patients unless you take proper precautions. To make showers safer, install grab bars and rails to help patients who are a little unstable on their feet feel more secure. Shower seats allow nurses to feel confident that their patient is stable and comfortable while showering, while nonslip treads provide traction on shower floors.
Toileting Safety Accessories Enhance Privacy and Independence
Everyone likes to feel independent, especially when bodily functions are involved. Help your medical staff give patients some much-appreciated privacy by ordering safety accessories for toilet areas. Portable commodes allow patients to take care of their toileting needs without straying too far from their bed, while metal frames that fit over existing toilets permit the patient to lower and raise himself more easily. When patients need to get up during the night, light-up toilet seats combine the function of a night light with the comfort of a molded plastic toilet seat.
