If a patient has scheduled NPH at 8:00am and then ALSO coverge with regular insulin (as per FS)...how do I draw up BOTH into a syringe? (because I know I wouldn't give two separate SQ's)
I just never had to do this at the SAME TIME! Sorry if it's a dumb question...I feel I'm suppose to know this by now, I'm graduating in Demember

We were taught to always draw up regular first. I believe this is so that the longer acting insulin (NPH) will not contaminate the faster (regular) insulin.
