Slips and falls
Slippery falls are the cause of many accidents in the home. The floor might be wet or the person and add a bit of speed and the person normally hits the ground hard!
Little ones find out the hard way, however, adults often do it out of necessity and forget the severe consequences, but are reminded quickly!!
Unfortunately a little fall can mean a break or a fracture – sometimes it is just the way we hit the ground and not just the force. However, often the fall just causes bruising and really hurts our pride!
Remind everyone in the home if they spill, even the tiniest bit of liquid, to clean it and dry it.
And if you have had a shower and are rushed to the hall way take a towel to step on to dry your feet and don’t forget to clean up the drips!!
