Can anyone tell me what happens if capillary blood sugars are checked AFTER the patient has eaten their meal. I know ideally they should be checked and Novolog given 5-10 minutes before they eat. This seems to be a next-to-impossible task on our very busy surgical floor. If blood sugars are checked after patients eat what do I do about their insulin...hold, give anyway? How do I know they won't bottom out? New nurse deb.
