(WGHP) — Falling gets more and more dangerous the older we get.

It might shock you, but nearly 80 percent of falls around the home are in the bathroom.

Falls can result in everything from bumps and bruises to broken bones, and they can create a problem for us and our older relatives.

Senior Advisor Linda Pritchett has a bathroom safety checklist that can help us fall-proof the slipperiest room in the house.
