Countless cases of deaths and injuries inside the bathroom have been reported.

On Tuesday, celebrity brothers Madtraxx of The Kansoul and DJ Stylez lost their sister doctor Njeri Muigai after slipped and fell in the bathroom.

Ms Muigai, who was 8 month pregnant, was found by her mom lying unconscious on the bathroom floor before she was rushed to the hospital where she was sadly pronounced dead upon arrival.

There are similar cases that go unreported and for that Plive.co.ke compiled tips to make sure your bathroom is safe.

1. Get grip bars

Fix firm grip bars in your bathroom that you could hold onto in case you slip on the slippery floor.

Caution: The bars must be concrete enough because when someone slides they usually put their whole weight on the object they are trying to get support from.

2. Keep the bathroom dry to avoid slipping

3. Make sure that the bathroom is always clean to get rid of slippery soap scum or mold.

4. Fix non-slip tiles

Non-slip tiles are ideal for the bathroom or any wet areas in your house. You could also use non-slip mats to make sure that you do not slide and fall.

5. Walk in bathtubs

Modify your bathtubs to be easily accessible in a bid to avoid any accidents.

Walk in bathtubs ensure that you get in easily and safely.

6. Avoid locking the door

This might sound weird but it is advisable not to lock the door so that in case of an accident the room can be accessed easily and faster.
