I received a Moen Bath Safety Grab Bar in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
I’ve been pregnant 5 times. Every time I’m expecting my husband always gets nervous when I’m in the bath or shower that I’m going to slip and fall. Towards the end of my pregnancy he will often ask that I call him or my older daughter when I get out of the bath so they can be there to help.
January is National Bath Safety Month. Bath safety is really a concern, no matter your age. Many times we just think about the dangers of leaving a child alone near water, but there are other concerns we all need to be aware of. Moen Home Care is making sure to spread the word about bath safety!
The Facts about Bath Safety:
There are nearly 200,000 bathroom accidents per year.
- Children under five and adults over 70 have the highest rate of unintentional falls in the home.
Every day in the U.S., 370 people of all ages suffer bathtub or shower-related injuries.
- 27% of women admit to falling while pregnant and 10% experience two of more falls in the bath.
The most challenging, and potentially dangerous bathroom activity, is getting in and out
of a bathtub safely.
- Many rely on items that are not designed to support body weight, such as towel bars, soap dishes and shower doors.
