Safety Tips from HDIS: Bedroom Safety

HDIS values safety to the highest degree; so much so that we have adopted the philosophy of “people first, safety always.” This means that we keep safety in mind at every level of the business: from purchasing the safest products for our customers, following strict safety policies in our shipping facilities, and especially when we council our valued customers on what measures they can take to keep themselves safe in their very own homes! We asked our experts on our Customer Care Team what tips they thought were most important regarding tightening up bedroom and this is what they had to say:

“Often we hear that getting in and out of bed is hard for adults that are experiencing problems with mobility. If a customer calls in and mentions that this is something they have been dealing with, I like to recommend that they purchase a bedrail to provide more stability and support.”

“Whenever I speak to a customer about bedroom safety, I always ask if they have had their flooring or carpet inspected recently. Tripping hazards can be a real danger to everyone moving around the bedroom, and keeping tripping hazards to a minimum should be a priority for all.”

“Many of our customers rely on walkers to safely navigate the rooms in their house. We like to remind those that do to keep the paths in their bedrooms clear of clutter and to store their walker next to their bed at night for easy access.  Keeping the walkers nearby and the pathways clear make for easy travel from the bedroom to other areas in the house!”

“If a customer calls in and brings up frequent urination at night, I not only recommend overnight products to minimize the amount of trips to and from the bathroom but I also recommend a bedside commode or urinal to decrease their chances of incurring a fall while traveling to the bathroom. If the customer is more mobile, and doesn’t rely on help getting around the house, I will highly recommend putting extra light in the bedroom that can be used when getting out of bed and to the bathroom.”
