The client gently rubs the insertion site after removing the needle.
The client verifies the type of insulin and checks the expiration date.
The client cleans and grasps the skin, inserting the needle at a 90-degree angle.
The client cleans the rubber stopper on the bottle with an alcohol swab before drawing a dose.
Number 1 is correct.
Rubbing the injection site is not advised as it can affect absorption. The client should check the vial of insulin for the correct type and expiration date. Insulin is a high-risk medication, and some clients may be on more than one type. Grasping the skin and inserting the needle at a 90-degree angle is correct injection technique. Prior to drawing up the dose, the rubber stopper should be cleaned with alcohol.
