which code references why saloon products (curling iron, hair dryers, etc.) are not allowed in resident rooms in a secured nursing facility?

Question asked by dfehr on Jun 13, 2017

I had a resident family member schedule a hair dresser to come in to take care of a non-ambulatory. I know there are fire risks that should be avoided in dealing with saloon equipment in resident rooms. When confronted with why they cannot i told them of the fire risks, to which they replied " show me the code?"  Could I please have the code references to this request?
