Ohh and why?
-tnx 🙂Rahma Mohammed Saber écrit: Thank you … Thats great but wher is the gloves ?! SIMTICS écrit: @Jacob, thanks for stopping by!. Some people do say that the small amount of air that may be in the needle hub will not have any serious consequences for an **intramuscular** injection. However, it is safe practice to always eliminate all air bubbles so that it becomes routine practice irrespective of the route of administration.

I was told that it is ok if there is air in the HUB area of the needle because its insignificant is that right? It can't be in the syringe but it can be in the hubSIMTICS écrit: Hi @gomulkaa, we are sorry that you were disappointed, however we made sure to label this YouTube clip "Prepare for…injection" and the description says it is an "excerpt." We are a small company that earns its revenue by selling subscriptions to our e-learning modules, so unfortunately we cannot give the entire content away for free.infinitydomi écrit: This is very usefulBroadcasting1996 écrit: I'm aware 🙂 thankyou thoughSIMTICS écrit: Hi – thanks for stopping by and commenting. We always recommend that you check your local regulations and institution policies – they do vary a lot, between locations, states, and countries. (And even between physicians and specialists who often have personal preferences on how they want things done by the nurses or MAs!)Broadcasting1996 écrit: Same here! they require us to turn the safety on because its a one handed kinda thing, and dispose directly into a sharps container. And where i live its a 10,000 dollar fine for every capped needle they find. jussam sanon écrit: i work at the urgent care and we never recap needlesmeshkat1388 écrit: خوب بود
