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.

Yeah, this clip is bizarre. Why would you do that while being recorded? I can think of a couple of possible reasons, all intentional, but what a freakin' weird thing to do while being recorded.

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.
