SHAVING STANDARDS: LICENSURE VERSUS HCBS EBD WAIVER PERSONAL CARE:

SHAVING STANDARDS

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

F.   SHAVING

1.  INCLUSIONS:

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
