This bothers me to no end. I have no one to blame but myself. Today was my first time using an insulin pen and a very long time. First, I forgot to prime needle by wasting 2 units in trash ( parent noticed and I was able to do so before giving the injection). Then, instead of leaving needle in site for 10 seconds I pulled out after 5. I felt so stupid and embarrassed. I notified the lead nurse and she said it should be fine. I just feel horrible because parents put their trust and faith in us school nurses, but today I failed
I learned a big lesson and will strive to do better.
