Fall is a trauma that can be caused by various things, either because of slipping, balance disorders, health problems, collisions, or because of tripping and so forth.
A patient who falls can experience complications due to a fall, depending on the cause of the fall, the position of the fall and the risk of the collision.
In elderly patients, complications that may occur after a patient falls are
1. a head collision or other body part
2. open wounds
5. broken bones
7. impaired bodily functions
In connection with your question, if your father falls in the bathroom, then an important first step is that it is necessary to have a direct examination to the doctor / clinic / hospital nearby to find out whether there are any risky complications that might occur, such as broken bones or head collisions. With this initial step, the doctor is expected to be able to conduct an examination and ensure there are no clinical conditions at risk.
In old age, often the fall in the bathroom is caused by a disturbance in balance or an early sign of interference with the central nervous system. So by examination by a doctor, it can be seen that the cause of the fall is due to slipping or other reasons, not because of health problems and not because of central nervous system disorders.
And even if you do the treatment independently, then you should:
1. advise your father to stay seated and lying down for the next 1 day to reduce excessive movement and stiffness of the muscles that interfere
2. care for wounds and close the wound if a wound is found
3. apply cold compresses to the painful part
4. order to move the limbs to find out whether there are abnormalities in the limbs
5. visit your family doctor
