Are your patients injecting insulin properly?
Tell them to view our new video on how to inject insulin with accuracy.
The word "injection" can be scary to most patients. However, it can become less frightening when patients are more familiar with how to correctly inject insulin. To help put your patients at ease, we have developed a new, two-minute video, in English and Spanish, with step by step instructions on the proper way to inject insulin. Encourage your patients to visit our video demonstration available online at the Diabetes Wellness Center to learn more about:
- Choosing and cleaning the injection site
- Filling the syringe with insulin
- Safe disposal of the syringe
And, don’t forget to remind them to view our video about HHC’s diabetes support groups and classes to find out how they can get support and encouragement at our hospitals and health centers.
