It so dark in the country the pitch blackness screams for nightlights. They are fairly cheap at the grocery or dollar store and far cheaper than a trip to the ER.
One nice feature about the bathroom here is an outlet right next to the toliet behind the door. I can see when the lid is up or down and it subtle enough light beaming when the door is open to the bathroom to know when the door is open as well.
I always have a night light in the bedroom and keep extra night light bulbs in a drawer.
