Bathroom Safety Equipment for Baths, Showers & Toilets
Bathroom safety equipment makes all the difference when you're assisting patients or visitors who have mobility issues or who are unsteady on their feet. Grab rails provide an extra layer of safety, while tub and shower chairs let patients enjoy getting clean or make life easier for hotel guests. Add risers and rails to help those with mobility issues to get to the toilet safely.
Safety Rails for the Bathroom
Install grab rails and safety rails to help clinic patients and hotel guests with disabilities use bathrooms safely. An adjustable grab bar for the bathtub installs without requiring any tools and locks into place. Its rubber pads prevent damage or scratches to your porcelain or metal tub. Opt for oil-rubbed bronze grab bars in your bath and shower when outfitting accessible rooms in your hotel or Bed & Breakfast.
Tub and Shower Chairs and Stools
The bathroom is the least safe room in any home or facility, because of this, consider adding a tub and shower chairs to provide an element of security for your nursing home patients or hotel guests. For many people, a tub chair makes a bath or shower a pleasant experience again, with no worries about slipping or falling. Choose an adjustable-height model with back, legs and arms that snap on and off for the greatest versatility. Lightweight chairs made of aluminum and plastic are easy to lift in and out of the bathtub or shower, and they hold up to 350 pounds to accommodate larger patients. Simple bath benches with no backs are handy for people who want to sit down in the shower to tend to their feet or shave their legs. Keep attractive teak models with adjustable height capability on hand in your Bed & Breakfast or hotel to help guests who've asked for accessible accommodations. Foldaway bath seats provide flexible use, and portable shower benches let you move your bathroom aids easily from one room to the next.
Toilet Aids for Those Who Need a Little Help
People with mobility difficulties often have trouble with the sitting and standing motions involved with visiting the toilet. Add safety rails that attach directly to the toilet to provide an extra level of assistance. Aluminum frames are simple to keep clean, and foam armrests make the rails easy to hang on to. Seat risers add extra height to make the sitting and standing process easier, with optional rails for added safety and assistance. Padded toilet seats raise the seat up by up to 4 inches and are invaluable for patients experiencing pressure point pain. Your nursing or housekeeping staff can attach them easily with hook-and-loop fasteners, then remove them to storage when no longer needed. Portable steel commodes are ideal for those patients who aren't mobile enough to make it to the restroom. Arms drop easily out of the way to facilitate lateral transfers, protecting the backs of your orderlies and nursing assistants.
