The area around the sink, the bathtub as well as the toilet area seemed to cause most of the injuries due to slips and falls. Standing up from the toilet and sitting down on the seat also caused 9% of total injuries.

The study shows that women must exercise more caution in the bathroom as they are more prone to injuries.
