LICENSURE VERSUS HCBS EBD WAIVER PERSONAL CARE:
Here are the citations that explain the rule variation in the task of Shaving for non-medical clients:
Licensure Standards allow for use of Electric OR Safety razor.
8.5 D. (11) Shaving. A personal care worker may assist a consumer with shaving only with an electric or a safety razor.
Volume 8 Medicaid personal care Standards allow for the use of an Electric razor:
8.489.31 SPECIFIC PERSONAL CARE TASKS
Shaving is considered unskilled only when skilled skin care, as described under EXCLUSIONS, is not required in conjunction with shaving; and only an electric razor may be used.
I hope this helps clarify your Policy!
Make it a great day
