Hi, I do not know why did you fail. Maybe you did not wipe bottles with alcohol? Please, let me know.

Hi, my e-mail: noskovalena@hotmail.com I watched video again and now I think that it could be because you did not show your syringe to CE before administering. I will appeciate if you'll let me know. Thanks.

Because you used 2 hands to recap the syringe?

Well, I'm gonna have to say either because you recapped the needle not using the one handed scoop techinique or because you inserted needle at higher than a 45 degree angle. Am I right? crsp@iland.net

No 90 is ok. good point on the 1 handed scoop but don't think thats a CE for this station. I did not check the insulin vials against the MAR. Don't make my mistake in your test.

when do you check vials against the MAR

Jess said...

I was told by someone that we have to have gloves on to draw up because touching the alcohol pads with our fingers is contaminating the pads therefore the vials. I thought this was the mistake, but guess not.

Cause you went Cloudy(NPH) before Clear (Regular)?

you did not demonstrate handwashing

The Male Nurse said...

He recapped the needle when he put the gloves on. When doing the "scoop" to recap the other hand has to be away from the needle. Check it out.

Check that the clear and cloudy insulin is the correct brand, Novalog or Humalog, and use the one handed scoop recap technique pushing the cap from the top. Those insulin needles bend easily and can pierce through the cap and cause an accidental stick. Sub Q always goes in at 90 degrees unless in arm of very thin person. We love you kiwi!

did you check the insulins
expiration date and check it
with the MAR? I am at the public
library and do not have the audio
to go with the video so correct me
if I am wrong about this.

If you notice...at the beginning, when you first inject air into the NPH you are not supposed to touch the NPH with your needle, you are supposed to inject the air without touching, so that when you withdraw you are not contaminating the regular vial with the NPH that you just got on your needle that's one of the reason....I saw many, mostly safety
