Kindest regrads
You are on clinical placement with your clinical teacher. You are undertaking your parenteral skills competency. The order is to give 25 units of Lantus (insulin). You have gathered all your equipment, explained the procedure and gained consent from your patient and are just about to inject. Just prior to your injecting the insulin your clinical teacher asks you:
?Do you need to swab the skin when giving a subcutaneous injection??

Part A: What does the current evidenced based practice literature suggest in regards to preparing the skin for a subcutaneous injection (s/c)?

Part B: Choose either to swab the skin or not swab the skin before you give the s/c injection

If you chose to swab the skin prior to the s/c injection – rationalise why you did
If you chose not to swab the skin prior to s/c injection ? rationalise why you did not
