How To Use Posey Economy Mitts?

Application Instructions (Repeat steps 1-3 for each mitt):
  • Insert the patients hand into the mitt, palm down. Separate the fingers so that they fit into the three finger separators. One slot is for the thumb, one is for the little finger, and the largest slot is for the remaining three middle fingers.
  • Wrap the wrist strap around the smallest part of the patients wrist, through the plastic ring, and secure with the hook and loop fastener.
  • Slide ONE finger (flat) between the device and the inside of the patients wrist to ensure proper fit. The strap must be snug, but not compromise circulation.

Additional or different body or limb restraints may be needed:
  • To reduce the risk of the patient getting access to the line/ wound/tube site
  • To prevent the patient from flailing or bucking up and down and causing self-injury.
  • Mitts are properly secured. If applied too tightly, circulation will be restricted; if applied too loosely, the patient may be able to slip his or her limb from the device
  • Hand mitts for elderly are intact, not torn or damaged, and hook and loop closes securely
  • DO NOT allow patients to ingest mitt material
  • The patient cannot use his or her teeth or otherwise remove the device and inflict self-injury
  • Monitor closely when the patient is out of bed. Patients who ambulate while wearing this device may be at risk of injury from a fall.

NEVER use mitts on a patient:
  • - If an IV or wound site could be compromised by the device.
  • - With a dislocation or fracture on the affected limb.
  • - DO NOT use on a patient who is or becomes highly aggressive, combative, agitated, or suicidal

Adverse Reactions:
  • Severe emotional, psychological, or physical problems may occur:
  • If the applied device is uncomfortable; or if it severely limits movement. If symptoms of these problems ever appear for any reason, get help from a qualified medical authority and find a less restrictive, product or intervention.
