No pedes - do not share this! Hate to be a party pooper, but there are a few nurses that will sometimes do that (eject residual medication) after administering shots. Based on my experience it's not that rare.

Sharing this will accomplish nothing good - it will just make you a laughing stock.

[https://www.pharmacytimes.com/view/medication-waste-attributed-to-syringe-dead-space-abandoned-initial-fills]

Medication waste drives cost inefficiencies in our health care system. The accumulation of unused medications may occur as a result of patient nonadherence, expiration dates that occur too soon to enable the use of a given initial quantity, over-purchase by the patient, and overprescribing, among other factors.1 However, 2 overlooked types of inefficiencies resulting in waste and avoidable costs are syringe dead space and abandoned initial prescription fills.

Syringe Dead Space

Recent study results attributed injectable medication waste to syringe dead space, or the volume of fluid left in a syringe after the plunger has been pushed down completely. The study compared high dead-space syringes (HDSS), which have a detachable needle, with low dead-space syringes (LDSS), which have permanently attached or integrated needles or a conical plunger to reduce dead space in the needle hub.

RN xs 20 years...I have "wasted" a tiny amout in order to prime a syringe prior to injecting but never afterwards, not like this - not ever.

I agree 100%. You don’t load the syringe with extra medication etc. and then try inject the correct dose into the patient. The correct dose should be in the syringe when administered.

Of course it should and yet it occasionally happens - I've seen it happen. Due to unfortunate circumstances involving family members I've spent tons of hours at hospitals and LT care over 10+ years and I've seen that done twice. I've seen a lot of questionable things.

Sorry, not with that much of the Vaccine. That was a solid flow not a few drops.

You're really going to argue with the nurse who has been giving injections for 20 years? Lame.

That's exactly whats happening here. If you're faking a shot, you don't hold it in plain view while being recorded. Shes locking the needle by pressing the plunger, which expels the tiny leftover amount sometimes. This is nothing.

Do you know what 1 ml looks like in a syringe? To give you an idea, there are 5 ml per teaspoon. That entire syringe holds 1 ml of liquid. What was squirted back out came from such a small syringe there isn't enough space to give a dose, proper amount, and have that much left over.

Yes but you’re supposed to do that part in the arm. The needle should only be exposed prior to going in the patient. Then you push the plunger to administer and keep pushing until it activates the safety and retracts the needle so it is never exposed after being in the patient and potentially sticking a third party.

They are using a graduated 1mL syringe (like an insulin syringe) so it could be the pfizer since the dose is 0.3 mL and that is the type of syringe that comes in the supply pack from the government.

I have only worked with the pfizer and not the other two so i am not aware of what supplies are coming with those. But in my 15 years experience in administering vaccines, we don’t use a graduated 1 mL syringe for vaccines like that. Most of the vaccines come in a prefiled syringe, you just add the needle. But for the ones you draw, typically use a 3 mL syringe for ergonomics. If giving a .5 mL dose in a graduated 1 mL syringe, the plunger is going to extend way beyond the reach of your thumb or index finger. With a 3 mL its closer to the hub and easier to do one handed to reduce needle sticks or patient injury.

This video seems odd, but i dont believe that it was intentionally not giving it, i believe it is a person who doesnt know how to properly give an injection. There are countless stupid people in healthcare that can pass a written test but would fail practical skill observation or lose skills over time because they don’t use them. The ones working these clinics are doing it for the extra money, not because they are experts at giving injections.

You're not very bright fren. Calling us fucktard yokels like that you glow now like a mother fucker. Obviously you don't belong here.

If the shoe fits then wear it you asshole. People like yourself are a ball and chain attached to the leg of this movement. The glowies are far, far more likely to be people who advance shit like this - but most likely they're simply dim.

Pedes should also be actively encouraging nearly all of hollywood to get the shot, for the very same reasons we're avoiding it.

Exactly. If they are filling the syringes quickly, they will overfill it rather than under fill it. They then inject the correct amount amd dispose of the remainder since it cannot be reused. This is done all the time for all kinds of shots. Not a conspiracy.

Ok. I guess. I worked in nursing for 3 decades. Gave a shit load of shots and saw a shitload of shots being given. Never once did I use this maneuver after administering an injection and never once did I see another person use this maneuver after administering an injection. I guess things have changed since I retired.

Right? Seems like it'd be a recipe for med errors. LOL. There are some stupid, stupid nurses out there but damn - this is definitely treading into full on retarded waters. If I were to see someone do this we'd have to have a conversation.

Seems much safer to load the correct amount first for sure than to accidentally inject more. To load too much first is sloppy & dangerous.

I personally would be mortified to draw up more than the actual dosage. I can't imagine any competent nurse doing that.

No it hasn't. I'm a nurse and never do this.

It doesn't make sense. If you use the syringe to measure the right dose, it would make sense to eject the excess before the shot (along with any bubbles). It makes less sense to measure on the fly, stopping before the syringe is fully depressed. Seems like a bad system.

yummy_yumm_yumms 6 points ago +6 / -0

I agree. There's no logic to stopping early because you won't be accurate every time like you would if you just squeezed the shot to the end of the tube.

Obviously it's bad and I'm sure great majority of nurses have never done it. But that it sometimes happens shouldn't be a big surprise.

I've spent time around enough different nurses (and I do mean different) to not be surprised.

This just isn’t factual. Why are you making this up? That’s the real question.

Don’t used syringes need to be disposed of properly so they don’t infect anyone? Wouldn’t shooting the medication randomly over your arm be a biohazard??

CannonballJunior 1 point ago +2 / -1

Video doesn't show what she did with the syringe - assume she disposed of it properly? Looks like the excess med maybe went into a basin of some sort - at any rate, don't ask me to defend it. Hey, stupid is as stupid does.

also they will not treat him special and if they did they would make it in private setting not filmed.

DNC spend a ton of money with fake stories to create noise on our side. they did this over and over again and many on this site still believe them instead of focusing on shit we can prove like spike proteins and clotting but not 5G and Trump will be president on some magic date in August.

these are fake stories they wrote to make us look like fools and confuse us. they tyen write dozens of stories in press taking us apart because they made them so they have them all pre written and roll them out..

I agree with CannonballJunior. 100% on the money here. ignore and move on
