My nurse had a walker because she turned her ankle while carrying cans she couldn't see over. This time she had a braced knee because she was cutting the grass on a riding mower and put out her leg to catch herself as it started to tip over. She did some serious damage.
The worker at the hardware store broke a rib because she fell getting out of the bathtub. I know people fall in the tub, but it turns out she normally got out of the tub by standing on its side. I don't think the step onto the side of the tub would be easy for me so obviously she was in better shape than I am, but then, I haven't managed to break a rib getting out of the tub...not yet, anyway. Why would anybody get out of the tub that way?
