I was wondering if anyone had any tips on IM injection landmarking, esp for the dorsogluteal site. I have had dif nurses give that injection in dif parts of the buttocks. I know upper outer quad is what it is supposed to be. I know to divide buttock in to fours, but it seems the needle is still given if different areas when dif people give injection. Or find the iliac crest and greater trochanter and draw diagonal line.
One nurse told me when she gives this injection she starts from the top of the buttock where the crack just begins and goes 3 inches over towards the hip and injects. Is this a good trick to use.
I find it hard to landmark this site sometimes due to increased weight or sagging skin.
Does anyone have any good tips/trick to give this shot. ( i have heard this site is no longer preferred but this is were we still give some injections)
