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.

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.

The 2nd time, after drawing back the plunger.

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.

That's not a full dose. This is no fuckery. There's nothing weird going on here. I've seen this twice with my own eyes over the years. You may have not seen it as a nurse, but it is absolutely a real thing that occasionally happens - and not just b/c I've seen it:

Dude, you can believe whatever you want. You're wrong but I really don't give a fuck what you ultimately "believe". You have multiple nurses trying to tell you what they see, what they know from years of experience...but because you apparently worked around some people at a LTC facility you know best. Sure thing pal! Do you go by what Fauci tells you too? I get the feeling you probably do, you just give off that impression.

I didn't work there, I was with family members who were in hospitals and LT Care for 10-11 years. And likewise, you believe what you want. You may be a nurse, but you seem to have a myopic, rigid mindset, or at least you give off that impression. Thinking this video is something sinister is just batshit crazy.

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.

This video wasn't taken at your clinic. It appears to be a parking lot drive thru. You can't possibly vouch for how precise the fill was and/or what the residual was.
