At the ISMP Intensive last week they talked about how unproductive a second nurse independent check is for subcutaneous insulin injections. We do currently use a double check but I am wondering what other facilities are doing. Pretty sure the nursing staff are not actually performing the check the correct way and we have created a policy that is almost impossible for them to follow..... If you are not using a double check, what are you doing to keep the patient safe??
