SQ Insulin Double Check Required?

Posted

Hi Everyone,  Does your hospital require RN insulin double checks for adult subcutaneous insulin? Our hospital is considering eliminating this practice, only for subcutaneous insulin. We use insulin pens for basal and rapid acting, not NPH or Regular.
 
Thank you in advance for your responses!
