    I think it has to do with your shower head you pick out. My parents don't have a door or anything on theirs.

    No, but make it deep enough so water doesn't splash out.......

    They do make wheelchair accessible shower kits for installation. I would think the non-wheelchair types may have a 'lip' that could be a potential hazard to wheelchairs. I saw some listed on Home Depot's website so you may want to ask them about making them accessible.

    If you make the shower a little larger, you can position the opening so water won't splash out

    I would make sure the entrance was wide, with virtually no lip, and a hand-held spray was installed at comfortable-reach. You could also have an overhead shower head, but more important would be a grab-bar or two installled to ensure the person in the chair or bath seat feels secure.
    A shower curtain and rod are certainly inexpensive enough. since many are “spring rods” they can be placed anywhere. Just make sure the curtains hang to the floor.

    you should have a curtain for privacy and to control the water from going all over but that can be pushed aside for the wheel chair
