I am kind of freaking out. I work in a facility where we do not give a lot of injections, usually just IM deltoid vaccines occasionally. Last week I gave a patient a dorsogluteal injection of Phenergan. I was trained to give these dorsogluteal, but now I am reading all of these horrible things about sciatic nerve damage, and how ventrogluteal is preferred. So when I gave the shot, the patient did bleed a little with needle retraction, at the time I assumed this was from capillary damage on the way out, since it was not an auto-retracting needle and I did aspirate. If I had hit the sciatic nerve, would it have been immediately obvious? The patient did not seem to experience any pain and he did not say anything. I definitely gave the injection in the outer upper quadrant, but what are the chances I harmed the patient?? I am now wondering about all the other dorsogluteal injections I have given over the years.
