I was told by one of the Doctor's that I work for the orther day, that I'm doing a good job in the office, but when I give my IM injections to patients in the hips I was told that I was going up to high. He also stated that some patients have complained of pain shooting down there legs. I know of one instance that a patient told me that after I gave him an injection. I have been a RMA for 7 years, and was taught that IM inj goes into the gluteus medius. So I asked the doctor, so your saying that I should put the inj in the gluteus maximus not the medius and he told me yes. I have always used my boundaries also, he also asked me if I knew about the quadrants, which I do.
So my question is am I giving injections wrong by putting them in the upper outer quadrant of the gluteus medius?, Or should I do as the Doctor says by putting IM injections down lower in the gluteus maximus? :stone
