Does anyone have in their facility any policies related to the use of pedestal hairdryers etc. for residents who are on O2? Specifically, there are new regulatory alerts out in our state (MI) stating that if there are residents who are in the beauty shop and are using O2, we can be cited if there are warnings on the equipment i.e. pedestal dryers, blow dryers, curling irons, hair spray etc. stating not to use near compressed oxygen. If a resident is observed receiving O2 under the dryer, while the beautician is using the blow dryer etc. the surveyors will cite at the immediate jeopardy level.

 

Has anyone seen this in your state and if so, have you come up with a policy? different equipment? How have you planned for this issue?

 

I welcome any and all input on this issue/problem.

I live in TX and have not heard anything about this rule. We have a Beauty Shop Operator that comes in twice a week to the residents. I will ask her if she has to follow any of these rules. She will be in on Wed.

     Thank you for correcting the information that was released. I recently took the test for certification with NAAPCC and it was a very comprehensive and thorough test. It was not a simple easy test to get you certified. You had to know the information in order to complete and pass. I would recommend this avenue to anyone especially if finances are a struggle for MEPAP I & II. I did purchase the book for long-term care seventh edition and without that I would have struggled.

    Celeste is awesome!! Anytime i have a question she gets right back with me and she is very informative. At first I didn't know if i was going to like the new course just for the fact my MEPAP course was the own pace and I work Full time plus have 3 kids. But i am loving it! It is very structured and with due dates I feel like i am holding myself more accountable for completed assignments sooner than later. It has actually been a beneficial change for me.. Thanks so much!!!

    Good Evening I wanted to let you know that I had completed mepap 1 and had only a couple weeks left of mepap 2 so I had looked at path 2 and have taken the activities test and passed so just sending in the application. I wanted to thank you for giving all your time to us even while Kathy was ill. It didn't go unnoticed, you was a great support and helpful at ideas or even different ways of changing thoughts to positive while feeling defeated. Thank You Stacey Passa AP-BC
