Most of the time, children work far away from home and cannot take care of their parents. Especially when the elders are old, they are easy to slip and fall if they are not careful. The bathroom is a place prone to accidents.
Dr. Clove thinks that you can customize a bathroom with the best bathing experience for those who are far away from home.
Let elders sit and take a bath.
The elderly are easily tired when taking a bath standing up. You can install the shower head fixer according to the height requirements, so that the elders can take the shower head down and hold it in their hands at any time.
You should also add a chair to the bath room or bathtub, or install a chair on the wall that can be put away at ordinary times so that they can sit and take a bath.
Multiple handrails are installed in the bath room.
No matter whether it is a standing bath room or a bathtub area, handrails perpendicular and parallel to the ground should be installed to allow elders to enter or leave the bath room or have an additional support point when bathing, so that they are not easy to fall down.
A railing can also be installed so that elders can have a place to help them when walking.
Anti-skid pad cannot be less
The bath room is wet and slippery, so be sure to place anti-skid mats for the elders. You can put one piece inside and outside the bath room.
Teach elders to set appropriate water temperature
1. Water heater with water storage device
Many domestic water heaters have their own water storage devices. In this case, the water temperature in the water tank should be kept above 60 ℃ as far as possible to inhibit the reproduction of bacteria such as Legionella, and an anti-scald valve should be installed at the water outlet to mix hot and cold water so that the water temperature can be reduced to below 49 ℃ when in use.
2. Gas-fired water heater
For gas-fired water heaters, the risk of bacterial contamination is small, but the effluent temperature is high and the risk of scalding is high. Therefore, the water temperature should be adjusted below 49 ℃ to prevent scalding.
Extended Reading: Will it be contagious to take a bath in the bathhouse?
Many people worry that public bathrooms will lead to the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. In fact, bathing in clean and regular bathing places will not infect sexually transmitted diseases.
Most sexually transmitted disease pathogens, such as Treponema pallidum, HIV, gonococcus and so on, its survival to the environment requirements are relatively strict, leaving the body is easy to lose the ability to infect. For example, HIV, unless infected persons bleed in the bath, and the surrounding bathing people have open wounds, otherwise they will not be infected by bathing together.
The reason why some irregular bathing places are easy to become hotbeds of sexually transmitted diseases is that people are infected due to unsafe sex in these places in order to attract customers and play a marginal role in pornographic services.
