CDC: Danger in the bathroom

The bathroom– it may be the first place you go each day, but a new study also reveals that an estimated 640 people are treated each day in emergency departments for nonfatal injuries suffered in the bathroom. The findings are published in Thursday's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

While U.S. injuries are documented in the National Electronic Surveillance System All Injury Program, (NEISS-AIP), there was no specific information available about injuries that occurred in the bathroom. The study authors note that their analysis of 2008 data is the first to dig deeper on nonfatal bathroom injuries among teens and adults. Looking at emergency department records, the researchers report that an estimated 234,000 people age 15 and older were treated for bathroom related injuries in 2008.
