While Preventing Errors
While Preventing Errors
The main purpose of the G-SLEEVE® is to protect the “affected arm” of the patient by alerting all nurses and medical staff of the potential severe risk of injury that may occur from unwanted blood pressures, intravenous access, and blood draws.
The G-SLEEVE® was designed by Gina M. Santosuosso, RN, BSN, to protect patients by preventing medical errors that may easily occur in any hospital or outpatient setting.
When taking blood pressure, administering an IV or taking blood draws when treating mastectomy, lumpectomy with lymph node removal and dialysis patients, it is sometimes advised not to use the “affected arm" to reduce the risk of injury that may possibly lead to more severe conditions such as lymphedema.
With many styles, colors and sizes you can find the right G-Sleeve that will work for you or your facility.
The G-SLEEVE® was designed to protect patients by alerting all staff of the patient?s potential risk for injury therefore preventing potential medical errors.
The G-SLEEVE® provides a sense of safety and protection and an overall ?Peace of Mind? for not only the patient?s and their loved ones but also the nurses, doctors and the medical facilities ensuring their safe treatment?
The G-SLEEVE® is a simple yet highly effective ?alerting tool? that reminds the medical staff that there is to be:
NO BLOOD PRESSURE
NO BLOOD DRAWS ADMINISTERED ON THE AFFECTED ARM!!!
The WRONG SITE SLEEVE can be placed on the arm or leg. It is designed to protect against "Wrong Site" Surgery.
Prevent with the PICC LINE SLEEVE!!!!!! The PICC LINE SLEEVE is placed on the patient’s arm that has the PICC line inserted.
It is worn on the forearm or slightly higher near the line dressing. It was designed at the request of several hospitals to alert staff that a PICC Line (PERIPHERALLY INSERTED CENTRAL CATHETER) is in place and to avoid taking blood pressures or starting an IV in that arm.
We also have a MID LINE Sleeve available for MID Line protection!
