Common Household Accidents

Getting hurt at home is unfortunately a common occurrence. Luckily there are steps to take in order to make sure your house is as safe as possible. In this video, Dr. Tanya Benenson discusses ways to improve the safety of your furniture, rugs and even appliances. For example, bad falls often happen in the bathroom so it’s important to have a non-slippery bathmat. Cuts and burns are most common in kitchen accidents. If you do suffer a minor injury, use the R.I.C.E. method of rest, ice, compression and elevation. And remember always keep emergency numbers by the phone!
