Did you know that your bathroom is statistically the most dangerous room in your home?
According to the AARP, bathrooms are the cause of more household injuries than any other room, including the kitchen. In 2008, nearly 22 million Americans over the age of 15 were injured in the bathroom, and over 235,000 people were treated in emergency rooms for bathroom-related injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Not surprisingly, the total number of injuries increase by age, with the majority of injuries occurring with people over the age of 65. However, proportionate to their age, 15-24 year olds are actually more likely to be injured in the tub or shower.
