Breach of Salon Standard of Care
A breach of salon standard of care can be caused by a multitude of things, whether it is failure of an employee to select an appropriate treatment, failure to heed directions and warnings of a product, and/or failure to cautiously and conscientiously perform a requested treatment. Although beauty salons and their employees guarantee to follow standard of care guidelines, this is not always the case. Unfortunately, when a breach of standard of care occurs, it can potentially cause a person pain, discomfort, and/or permanent physical damage. A local Phoenix beauty salon is required by law to follow the guidelines and procedures of standard of care for the benefit of all its patrons.
Various Breaches of Standard of Care
- One such breach of salon standard of care is when an employee fails to select an appropriate treatment/product for a client's requested service. For example, an employee fails to perform a patch test, which would make certain that the product is not defective and that the product would be correctly used for the client's chosen treatment. Some effects of this breach include creating an allergic reaction or unwanted hair loss.
- Another breach of salon standard of care is when an employee fails to heed the directions and warnings that are provided with a product. This breach can happen if an employee does not follow the directions on how to apply a specific product or on how long to leave the applied product before removing it. This can also occur when an employee mixes hazardous materials, for a dye, despite the warnings on a product's label. Unfortunately, some effects of this breach include varying degrees of chemical burns or severe facial scars.
- Lastly, an additional breach of salon standard of care is when an employee fails to cautiously and conscientiously perform a requested treatment. For example, an employee fails to attentively perform a service or deliberately neglects the client's requested treatment. This inattentiveness or negligence may cause a variety of injuries, such as those stated above.
If caution and awareness are not a beauty salon's main priorities, then a breach of salon standard care will likely ensue. Such breaches can be caused by, but are not limited to, negligence, inattentiveness, or a conscious violation of safety codes and standards.
