Safety Around the Home
Besides having the proper Medical Supplies San Diego, the elderly need to take special precautions around the home. If a wheelchair or scooter is part of your medical equipment SD, there needs to be ample space to maneuver. That means the floor should be clutter free. Of course it should be clutter free regardless because you don’t want to create any tripping hazards. Furniture needs to be spaced out properly to give you room too and make sure rugs are securely on the floor with rug mats. This will prevent rugs from slipping on the hardwood floors and so your scooter doesn’t get caught on a corner.
Any electrical cords should be neatly tied up and tucked away. Especially watch out for those lamp cords. Twist ties will do the job nicely. For those with oxygen tanks, there needs to be some extra space too. You will need room to wheel the tank around. If you have a large tank, you might want to rest them on area rugs so they don’t scratch the floor and it’ll be much quieter and less abrasive if the tank were to tip over.
