Wipe up spills immediately to reduce the risk of falls or slips and avoid the area until it had completely dried. Warning signs should by temporarily set up until the liquid is removed from the floor at workplaces and shopping centres. When coming inside wipe your feet on entrance mats. Your soles may be wet and slippery on polished boards or tiles. Stop your fall before it stops you!!

If you do slip over let your medical team and your caregivers know. They might need to check you for injuries.

Bones weakened from metastatic cancer can break or fracture. Even minor slips/falls can result in broken bones. It is extremely important for the patient to take special care.
