Don’t slip on a banana peel!

 

 

Did anyone ever really slip on a banana peel? The slip-on-a-banana-peel gag has been used in comedy routines since at least the early 1900s.

But it is a timely reminder that you have to be very careful of what in under foot and clear areas so you do not not to trip or slip on anything.

Patients undergoing cancer treatment are more at risk for osteoporosis and bones weakened from metastatic cancer can break or fracture. Extreme care needs to be taken not to trip or slip over items on the floor. Clear space around you especially before darkness.  You don’t want to lose your footing in the dark and go for a slide.

If you slip or fall, let your medical team and your caregivers know. They might need to check you for injuries.
