Intramuscular Injections
  • Injections are one of the most frequent used pharmacological interventions
  • The importance of safe injection administration cannot be underestimated. Once the medication has been administered via IM it is irretrievable
  • The identification of the most appropriate muscle site for each injection is vital in order to ensure that the medication reaches its target area, and to avoid injury/trauma to the person
  • Traditionally given into Dorsogluteal muscle, however contemporary evidence suggests that this muscle is not as safe or effective as Ventrogluteal muscle
