 The Order of the Bath [May 1994; 4-6]
Twenty one patients (14%) said they had been unable to get out of the bath at some time, and though most were stuck in their bath for less than an hour, three were stuck for 1-4 hours, and two were stuck overnight.
The reasons for being stuck were split almost equally between a physical disability, and the bath and its environment: lack of bath aids, such as grab rails, was a major factor in preventing people getting themselves out.
Bath aids (like hand grips, shower stools and the like) are readily available from a number of sources, are relatively inexpensive and not difficult to fit or use.
