Confused about Carpuject??? - page 4

    Some goofballs decorate their carpujects. Oh well.

    Big difference between decorating a carpuject and pulling one out of a Sharps box full of blood and dirty needles, I am not sure I see the relation you are trying to make?! (I am not sure why anyone would think my point and this point are even related), and then using it on another patient, there are far to many crevices etc to thoroughly clean that and why would you risk your health or your patients' when you can use alternative means or, hey here is an idea, call the pharmacy for a new CLEAN one!!

    I was referring to how some people get unreasonably attached to carpujects, in particular ones they decorate.

    I called these people "goofballs" because they do goofball things like pull carpujects out of a sharps container - and bedazzle their carpujects. Now, before you ask, I am not directly relating bedazzling carpujects - or anything else - to pulling anything out of a sharps container. As you have pointed out repeatedly, that is a really bad thing to do.

    I'm sorry I did not spell this out to your satisfaction in my previous short post. Please direct any further inquiries to HR and have a nice day.

    I think your focusing on this far too hard. Its just a method to push the medication. Many meds are packaged different ways. Once you get the hang of them they can be faster than just drawing the med up in a syringe and save supplies because the carpujet can be used multiple times.

    i laughed so hard at this. Bedazzling a carpujet....must have been a slow day. I can only imagine what happened to the tongue depressors.
