Hotel Guest Suffers Brain Injury Due to Shower Defect
FLORIDA—Last week I read about a female hotel guest who suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) due to a defect in her room’s tub/shower. As she was preparing to take a shower she fell while entering the tub/shower of a well-known hotel chain.
The investigation of this incident revealed that the tub/shower was missing several important safety features, including non-slip grip strips and safety hand rails. As she entered the shower the lack of these two necessary safety items caused her to lose traction, and having no safety hand rails to catch herself she went down. This woman suffered a skull fracture, a closed head injury (TBI) and a large laceration in her hairline requiring staples to close the gaping wound.
