After Hip Replacement: Home Safety
Becoming more aware of hazards in your home can help make your recovery safer. You might want to have furniture rearranged so it’s easier to get around.

Don’t forget to watch out for hazards like wet floors, loose or worn rugs, electrical cords, or uneven surfaces.
