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.

Sorry, looked at it again and completely disagree.

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

BTW, what's your opinion of the 25 years Nurse in this thread (who agreed with me and disagreed with the 20 year nurse)?

When they're a moonbat - absolutely. I've known enough nurses to know they don't all walk on water. Some are very far from it. What's actually lame is an attitude of obsequiousness to someone with a certain title. That mindset is why fauci and his ilk have been allowed to wreak so much unnecessary havoc.

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.

Ive been an RN for 25 years, I am familiar with syringes, and what 1 ml looks like. And its my opinion that's a locking syringe, the leftover is normal, and may seem like a lot coming from a tiny needle, but its insignificant. It would take 1-2 full seconds to empty a full tb syringe, not a quick squirt like that. I could go on and on, but there is nothing in that video of any consequence.

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.

ETA:

From a 2016 article:

[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.

“Volume of fluid left in a syringe after the plunger has been pushed down completely.”

In other words, you can’t get it out by depressing the plunger, which is what the nurse did in the video.

Dude, what was pushed out afterwards was an entire dose. This is not normal, this is not part of any routine procedure and this is not an example of a wasted amount of extra "left in the syringe". You draw up what you need, there are 5 rights to drug administration: Right medication, right dose, right time, right patient and right route. You'd literally have to be retarded to draw up enough to give an entire dose "maybe", add enough to give 2 doses at once, and then by guessing, by eyeballing it pull out the needle and waste another entire dose onto the ground once you've injected what "looks right". Something very weird is going on here. It's a pretty crucial aspect of nursing, to get the med right...if this woman is giving dose after dose, I'm thinking she's competent. Telling you - this is some fuckery.

I have worked a china virus injection clinic back in December through January when the hospital I worked for started dosing the staff. The person giving the injection is not the person filling it. There is no dead space in these because of the limited daily supply due to strict storage requirements and limited shelf life after thawing. There is a team of pharmacist that are filling these syringes precisely. That article may be true for most vaccines because i can attest i have accidentally wasted a small amount when they used to teach us to prime the needle to not get air inside. Now they have determined that the tiny amount of air in the lumen of the needle is harmless and to not prime it anymore.
