Health Tip: Should I Be Concerned About Home Safety?

Home injuries such as falls or accidents are a leading cause of death for Americans. Whether you take extra caution in the kitchen or place non-skid mats in the bathtub, every step taken towards safety makes a difference.

  • Keep a lamp or flashlight and telephone within reach of your bed.
  • Post emergency and contact phone numbers by each phone.
  • Make sure rugs and other obstructions are placed away from walkways and other frequented areas.
  • Avoid overloading electrical outlets. Power strips are a good solution for outlets that need more than two plug-ins.
  • Sometimes falls and other accidents can be prevented by just being able to see more clearly. Make sure rooms, hallways and working areas have ample lighting.
  • Use a steady stepladder or stepstool rather than a chair to reach items in tall cabinets. Better yet, work with family members or professionals to re-organize frequently used items into easy-to-reach areas.
