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:

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.
