Treating folks, like you, who move for a living and live to move
Author: Richard SymisterPEEING AT NIGHT AND FRACTURES: What's the Link?
At night, are you awake and coordinated when you go to the bathroom to pee? Darkness, half asleep, furniture, rugs, thresholds, dogs — plus the urgency to urinate? Not a great combination. It’s a miracle we don’t have more accidents. Now imagine being elderly, already being vision and balance compromised. There is a strong correlation between elderly falls and nighttime urination and fractures.
Here are a few TIPS to keep you safe when having to tingle at night:
- Clear your thresholds.
- Remove slippery rugs or tape down the edges.
- Have nightlights on or flashlights nearby, or install automatic sensor bulbs.
- Wear glasses? Put them on. Contacts? Keep a backup pair of glasses nearby, if possible.
