osha guidelines, building codes, etc. are a place to start., but these are gov't specs
, one size fits all. or considering they are gov't specs, maybe one size fits nobody.

With a little thought and common sense, i'm sure you could take into account the specific individual's problems and greatly improve on any Gov't spec's.

Also checkout the restrooms in hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living, newer motels, etc. for ideas. Most of these places, if approached apropriately will probably let you take a look.

: I am looking for help in adding a bathroom to our house, by turning an existing bedroom into a bathroom for a handicap person. I'm interesting in what is nesessary and safety and comfort features. There are suppose to be some OSHA guidelines and requirements, probably mainly ment for institutions, such as hospitals, but had thought even that might help. I am looking for proper placement of fixtures and size, as well as safety bars, etc. I woud appreciate any assistance/ suggestions you would have. We will be adding a new master bedroom to the house, that will be adjacent to the bath.

: Thank you, Betty
