MOM!!!!

Last Friday Mom fell off of one of these
and landed on this (concrete floor) at work.

Somehow, she managed a perfect side fall, landing on her right side with her arm above her head. She did NOT hit her head on the floor. She did, however, hit her palm, shin, knee AND ribs.
Once the boss and the other employees got her up, she took another (the third in three months) trip to the walk in clinic for x-rays.
AMAZINGLY, she did NOT break any ribs. But she is going to be sore for a while. I think I am going to have to sit on her for at least a month to make certain she heals.
Is anybody elses mother this accident prone?

Almost. Although our mom has never broken one of her own bones (that's another story), she is weirdly accident prone. Monday morning in the space of two hours, she had to change her clothes (don't ask), set her shirt on fire (don't ask) and completely borked her work phone. She's pretty much given up ladders after one collapsed with her on it (still didn't break a bone) and one fell over, leaving her stuck in the attic.
Your mom needs to be bubble wrapped.
And your mom's work needs to take better care of her. In all seriousness, have the lawyers/insurance company not started looking at them sideways? OSHA hasn't started poking their nose in?
We hope your mom takes the weekend to rest and recover. Lots of naps and pug heating pads.
