Although a routine part of providing nursing care, administering medications should never be a casual practice as the potential for serious harm—even life endangerment—can easily result from an error. This is particularly true when administering injectable medications.

This is the third and final program in a three-part series that will demonstrate and describe the safe administration of medication by injection: subcutaneous, intradermal, intramuscular, and into an intravenous injection port (parenteral medication administration). Included in this program is discussion of the mandatory use of safer needle devices to prevent needlestick injuries.

After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
  • Differentiate between subcutaneous, intradermal, and intramuscular injections and when each would be used
  • Identify the landmarks used for subcutaneous, intradermal, and intramuscular injections
  • Describe the use of the "Z-track" injection technique
  • Describe the need for the use of safer needle devices
