Interview with Adam Liebelt Home safety expert

November 22, 2019

Gary Barg interviews Adam Liebelt President of H and H Bath and Safety, a leading national expert on how to keep our loved ones and clients safe in their homes.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every year, about 235,000 adults visit emergency rooms due to injuries suffered in the bathroom. More than a third of the injuries happened while bathing or showering. The researchers also found that people over 85 suffer more than half of their injuries near the toilet. Also, bathroom injuries are the major reason for Emergency Room visits for seniors and a major reason for long-term care placement.
