Abstract

Being clean shave is often important for male hospital patients, who may feel more dignified, more 'themselves' and better cared for if they can shave-or if someone helps them with shaving.This article explores male facial shaving as an aspect of fundamental nursing care and discusses its meaning and value to patients, to families and to nurses themselves.
