Disposable Battery Razor, Is there a standard?

  1. Electric, or disposable razors have been used for years at our hospital for patients who are on anticoagulant therapy. It is the policy not to use standard razors due to possible skin nicks which may result in excessive bleeding. Is this standard practice in most hosptials or is this policy out dated? Does any one know of supportive litature? The disposable razors are quite expensive and are not of good quality. Thanks for your help
