Stay Sharp for Potential Errors With Insulin Pens

You'll see a stronger focus on preventing mishaps with insulin pens.

Teach proper injection technique. For example, show patients how to dial a dose. Pens can be dialed in 0.5-, 1-, 2-, or 5-unit increments...and confusion may lead to under- or overdosing.

Also educate to leave the needle in the skin for about 5 to 10 seconds after injecting...to ensure the entire dose is delivered.
