For clarification, where is the best IM site for an adult? The book that l am using says Vastus lateralis; all along l thought that was for children because that is their most develop muscle.. Help please
Best spot for IM injections I have found is the Deltoids (if 1 mL or below) and the Ventrogluteal (if more than 1 mL). Vastus lateralis is fine also. Just remember if giving any IM injection more than 1 mL, do not give in the Deltoids!
