Who is guilty of this?

Who is guilty of this, leaning over the side of the bed to retrieve something that has fallen onto the floor? It’s a disaster waiting to happen or maybe a broken collarbone!

It can also cause dizziness from bending over especially if you have low blood pressure. Many medications, treatments, and diseases can cause problems with imbalance and dizziness, which affects your mobility.

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 about how to go about your daily activities.  You don’t want to accidentally fall out of bed.

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