    2. when administering IM injections to a newborn, the nurse should not give more than _____ ml per injection.

    According to Neofax: 1.Trough theraputic drug level for gentamicin is 0.5 to 1 mcg/ml?---- is true

    2. Somewhere in the back of my brain it registers 1ml, that may be peds though. In practice, </=0.5 ml is what most injections are.
