Concerns : 

Concerns More infections were being reported in the last decade Injuries, damages & deaths were being reported

NAIL SALON INFECTION SURVEY : 

NAIL SALON INFECTION SURVEY Developed a web site, 2005… www.NailSalonInfectionSurvey.com Purpose: To form the first national database concerning salon related infections.

NailSalonInfectionSurvey.com : 

NailSalonInfectionSurvey.com

Collected Information : 

Collected Information This information and an event that happened in 2006 lead to the development of a book called…….

March 2006 : 

March 2006 After Kimberly Jackson died March 2006, Death By Pedicure was published Nov/2006.

Two More Deaths occurred while writing other editions of my book : 

Two More Deaths occurred while writing other editions of my book Jessica Mears, San Jose, CA, (2006) died of Mycobacterium whirlpool infection that converted to a MRSA infection from a pedicure injury that did not heal for two years. Gerry Ann Schabarum, Indian Wells, CA, (2007) died from a staph infection believed to be from a salon pedicure

Death By Pedicure : 

Death By Pedicure Doctors, Lawyers, and consumers were calling with their concerns; nail techs were asking how to make their salons safer, and educators were seeking information on to improve the cosmetology textbooks. Developed MediNail Learning Center in 2007 to provide accurate information and education. An industry-focused edition, The Science of Pedicures is the text of the ANT/MNT courses.

A Market Forecast : 

A Market Forecast A crisis is forming in three (3) distinct US markets that can impact the Nail Salon industry.

First: The Baby Boomer Market : 

First: The Baby Boomer Market

Next: The Podiatry Market : 

Next: The Podiatry Market

Last: The Nail Salon Market : 

Last: The Nail Salon Market

Baby Boomer Statistics : 

Baby Boomer Statistics Increasing numbers of baby boomers are becoming diabetics with special foot care problems More people, including baby boomers are becoming MRSA colonizers (individuals who have MRSA but are not showing symptoms of infection

Baby Bloomer Market : 

Baby Bloomer Market More BB Retiring More BB with diabetes More BB with Hepatitis B/C & MRSA More BB with foot care problems

Baby Boomer Market : 

Baby Boomer Market Another influence on the market: The Boomer has more discretionary income than any demographic in the United States

Baby Boomers are retiring in record numbers & going on Medicare : 

Baby Boomers are retiring in record numbers & going on Medicare

US Health Statistics : 

US Health Statistics Many health care claims are being declined by Medicare and other insurance companies as “Not Medically Necessary” Baby Boomers bring their health care problems into Nail Salons to unprepared nail technicians

MRSA JAMA 2007 : 

MRSA JAMA 2007 Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) was responsible for: estimated 94,000 life-threatening infections 18,650 deaths in 2005 16,000 people died from AIDS (USA) The Journal of the American Medical Association. Oct 17, 2007.

Boomers Have More Nail Fungus & Are Going to Podiatrists More : 

Boomers Have More Nail Fungus & Are Going to Podiatrists More

More Baby Boomers Have Swollen Feet and Are Going to Podiatrists : 

More Baby Boomers Have Swollen Feet and Are Going to Podiatrists

Boomers have more Diabetes : 

Boomers have more Diabetes 23.6 million people in the United States, or 8% of the population, have diabetes. Increased by 13.5% from 2005 to 2007.

'Boomers Average 5 Cardiovascular, GI & Pain Meds' : 

'Boomers Average 5 Cardiovascular, GI & Pain Meds'

US Health Stats on Hepatitis : 

US Health Stats on Hepatitis All Hepatitis, USA – the CDC estimates over 500,000 new cases per year. 4000 - 5000 deaths per year Estimated 1.5 Million HBV carriers in the US 300 Million Worldwide HBV, Worldwide – World Health Organization 400 - 500 Million new cases per year 1 million deaths annually

Hepatitis B : 

Hepatitis B How many of you have Hepatitis B Vaccinations Series? Series of three shots Leave one out – not immune Why are they not required for nail techs?

Second Market: Podiatry : 

Second Market: Podiatry Podiatrists are needing help!

Podiatry : 

Podiatry

Second Market Change : 

Second Market Change The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) research says that Three (3) times the number of podiatrists will be needed in 10 years to handle all the new baby boomer foot care problems. That’s impossible. Not enough medical schools exist to train that many podiatrists.

Second Market Change : 

Second Market Change Currently Podiatrists are retiring faster than newly trained podiatrists entering the work force. This means more foot care with fewer podiatrists We don’t know if this will change in the future with other para-professionals entering the field (foot care nurses, NPs)

Podiatry Markets : 

Podiatry Markets More Podiatrists are retiring than as being trained to enter podiatry These podiatrists will need force multipliers or physician extenders

Force Multipliers are: : 

Force Multipliers are: Employees trained to takeover the non-invasive treatments for the busy physician, such as: Trimming toenails Debriding calluses Other medical services Added advantage of NTs in Podiatry offices: Can perform cash services

Podiatrists Need: : 

Podiatrists Need: A trained individual to perform routine foot care A medically-trained Nail Technician to develop a Medical Pedicure clientele-base “Mediceutical” office retail product lines , items such as foot creams, nail polishes and other foot care items.

What other conditions in Podiatry? : 

What other conditions in Podiatry? Decrease in insurance reimbursements Cost to file a claim increases every year ($18) Higher co-pays, higher deductibles, higher insurance premiums, lower coverage Seeing more routine foot care with less access to well trained employees

Decrease in Medicare Reimbursements : 

Decrease in Medicare Reimbursements Reimbursements to physicians have been reduced or held the same every year for the past 10 years

Filing Insurance Claims : 

Filing Insurance Claims If a physician bills Medicare as Primary for nail care he’s paid approx 80% of $36.00 = $28.80. Secondary insurance must be billed or patient pays remaining 20% ($7.20) The cost to process a claim averages $18/claim. $18 total for efforts and waits weeks for that. Something must change

Podiatry : 

Podiatry Podiatrists will appreciate CASH-BASED OPPORTUNITES

Third Market Change : 

Third Market Change A CRISIS IN THE NAIL INDUSTRY!

Nail Technician Market : 

Nail Technician Market Lower market for artificial nails A shift to more natural care In the past 5 years there has been more morbidity, bringing increased anti-salon media Increased number of serious infections and deaths being reported in the past 5 years

Nail Technician Market (con’t) : 

Nail Technician Market (con’t) Below Market or Discount salons lowered service fees for traditional salons Undercover reports by the media showed only 25% of the nail techs following prescribed state disinfection protocols Fewer nail technicians are enrolling in most schools to fill salon/spa needs The perception is that lower enrollment is caused by lower salon revenues

Changes in Nail Salon Market in the Last 10 years : 

Changes in Nail Salon Market in the Last 10 years Lower Artificial Nail Revenue

More Natural Nail Services : 

More Natural Nail Services More Natural Nail Services

More Skin Infections : 

More Skin Infections

Increase in Discount Salons Lowered Service fees : 

Increase in Discount Salons Lowered Service fees

Lower Enrollment in Nail Schools Perceived by Many as Caused by Lower Tech Revenue : 

Lower Enrollment in Nail Schools Perceived by Many as Caused by Lower Tech Revenue

Nail Salons : 

Nail Salons Fewer artificial nails Fewer techs enrolling in schools Decrease in revenues Decrease in performance of disinfection protocols identified by media

Nail Salons : 

Nail Salons Increased infections with 3 actual deaths Increase in below market (discount) salons Increased need for improved professional image

State Cosmetology Boards : 

State Cosmetology Boards State Boards Have been historically resistant to change Many boards who improve regulations return to former ruling under pressure State legislators and government officials are not usually responsive in many cases to needed changes or don’t understand the issues Not Teaching what you really need to know

Industry Changes : 

Industry Changes The changes must come from within the beauty industry – self regulation The nail technicians, cosmetologists and schools must improve their own image by removing possibilities of negative press by increasing: Education Sterilization Standard Aseptic Techniques Marketing their healthy practices

Review of Markets : 

Review of Markets ? Increase in (BB) Baby boomers with foot problems ? Decrease In Podiatrists ? Decrease In Nail Tech students

Number of Estimated Professionals : 

Number of Estimated Professionals 14,000 Podiatrists need manpower 600,000 Cosmetologists are providing nail services in full service salons 400,000 Nail Technicians in 55,000 “nails only” salons Many are not practicing currently; could not afford to stay in the industry

Perfect Conditions : 

Perfect Conditions This situation creates the “perfect storm” for Nails Technicians and Cosmetologists to enter the field of Medical Pedicure Opportunities

QUESTION : 

QUESTION How do we get these markets together? How can Podiatrists develop trusted referral relationships or hire trained force multipliers to meet the increased patient population? How can the nail professional become the force multiplier preferred by podiatrists to aid them in meeting BB podiatry needs?

Answers : 

Answers Train Nail Technicians to the standard of working in a podiatrist’s office on at-risk clients Raise the bar in prevention performance of salon nail technicians so podiatrists can comfortably refer routine clients to them/open their books to patients with nail pathology

Three Solutions : 

Three Solutions 1. Provide Advanced Training to nail techs to gain their acceptance into the medical community as force multipliers 2. Raise the commitment by nail technicians to safer techniques to encourage physicians to refer to them or hire them 3. Increase the public confidence in Nail Salons and Nail Technicians through higher standards of care

Similar Business Model with Aestheticians : 

Similar Business Model with Aestheticians Dermatologists, Plastics Surgeons and other aesthetic physicians have accepted aestheticians as force multipliers.

Medical Aesthetician : 

Medical Aesthetician Medical aesthetician training classes are conducted across the country Taught by anyone who wishes to set up a class Very expensive one day to a weekend course with limited practical experience No guarantee of quality or standardization

The Difference? : 

The Difference? This course is being coordinated as a certification through mutual cooperation between physicians and educators Consistent, relevant and targeted education No huge fees (Aestheticians pay thousands) Experienced instructors/authors

Faculty :

Melbourne Woman Sues Nail Salon After Toes Amputated 6/08 MELBOURNE, FL (AP) -- A Melbourne woman is suing a nail salon, claiming a $25 pedicure caused her to lose two toes. Lynn Hulland -- who is a diabetic and is susceptible to skin ulcers from even minor wounds -- is suing for unspecified monetary damages. She says a non-English speaking nail technician at the Regal Nail salon cut her foot, which caused an infection. Hulland had been going to the salon for a few months and says she repeatedly told the staff that a razor couldn't be used on her feet because she was a diabetic and prone to infection. Hulland was hospitalized for 17 days and doctors later removed two toes. http://origin.firstcoastnews.com/news/florida/news-article.aspx?storyid=110849&catid=
