Hi Kathryn and Anna,

Since we're an emergency and specialty hospital, we don't do a lot of nail trims on our hospital floor. If a patient requires a nail trim during their visit we will still grab our clippers. I'll see if we can get a local partnering clinic to help make a video about using a dremel instead of clippers!

Thanks for your comments and feedback.
