A diabetic customer recently sued the beauty parlor that caused her to suffer burns from her nail service. Pat Liapis of Direct Salon Equipment talks about how the right salon supplies can lessen these cases of negligence.
March 7, 2013 – Last month, the cased was finally closed after a 66 year-old woman sued the hair and nail parlor in California that caused her to stay in the hospital for a month due to negligence. The salon had to pay $20,000,000 because of the damages that they have caused.
The woman is a diabetic and has been visiting the beauty parlor for five years already. Her pedicurist already knows about her diabetes and the extra caution that needs to be taken when caring for her foot since the condition causes her to have little feeling and sensitivity in her lower extremities.
When she came in for a pedicure last January 2012, she was the only customer present. The pedicurist did the usual routine of soaking her feet in the tub of water before they start with the nail trimming. She asked the client about the warmth, and when the client said it was fine, she walked away and was not able to return for a long time. She left the customer seating in the pedicure chair with her feet soaking in hot water unattended.
When she came back, they went on with the nail trimming. It was not until the evening when the client went home that she noticed blisters on her foot. The client also experienced high fever at that night.
When the woman was brought to the hospital the next morning, she had third degree burns. Skin grafts were performed on her left foot. She was also placed for dialysis since kidney damage occurred due to the burn toxins.
The beauty parlor owner fired the pedicurist. He also said that the incident may have happened partly because the electric tub that was used was also malfunctioning. It should not have caused that much heat.
Pat Liapis, owner of Direct Salon Equipment, says that it is important to invest on the right equipment in order to make clients safe and allow stylists to work in a better way. He explains that “Businesses must pay attention to the products they use. For salons that plan to stay in the business for the long term, it makes sense to invest on the right things from the very beginning.”
