Hotel bathroom shower

Rock star and TV talent judge Steven Tyler was recently severely injured when he slipped and fell in his Paraguay hotel shower. Astronaut John Glenn and other people have had similar accidents. It should be a warning to all travelers. Many hotel shower stalls have slanted floors and can get very slippery when soapy.

Additionally, outside the shower, the bathroom floors are often made of very slippery marble blocks. It often happens that the more upscale hotels have the the most dangerously slippery shower stalls and bathroom floors.

If you’re elderly or otherwise unsteady on your feet, when you check in to a hotel, ask for a handicapped room. They usually have elbow-high bars on shower stall inside walls.
