We frequently respond to patients who have fallen and injured themselves.  They may have slipped  or tripped but some have climbed onto unstable elevated heights such as chairs and tables to reach objects in cabinets.  These are not always the elderly but sometimes impaired judgment of the elderly tempts them to this unsafe practice.  So, please, either have someone else do the climb, reposition needed objects to a lower easy to reach location, or if you just must, then use a safe ladder for the climb.
