Beauty Shop Policies

Recommended Posts

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.
