Quote from apocatastasis
I would never administer a med out of a glass vial that wasn't drawn up with a filter needle. Never.
what is your rationale never to administer a medication out of a vial that wasn't drawn up with a filter needle ...
if a vial's content has glass in it you wouldn't be using the damaged vial would you ?
how does filter needle protect you or your patient in piercing the rubber bung of a vial ?
if you had said it about an ampoule ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ampoule
) it's understandable but probably over cautious... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vial
