Hello! I am a new nurse. I just got a job as home care nurse. I have a case and my patient is an 1 year old. I have to give subc injections, I know how to inject but I am having a hard time injecting her. Parents are present so far but I wonder how I will handle giving the injection when the parents are not around to help hold the baby still. Baby moves and cries when she feels I am cleaning with alcohol pad her tight. She starts moving and crying. Can someone please tell me how to place the baby and hold her when I am alone with not help and I have to give the injection.
Thank you in advance for the comments or suggestions !
