This week’s interesting video comes from Western Polytech Hospital in America, where hundreds of people recently lined up for flu vaccinations in a makeshift clinic.
What’s interesting about it is that a news story on the clinic sparked some calls from nurse viewers, who were concerned about the injection techniques displayed & queried whether or not in some cases the correct vaccine dose was even being administered.

Performing injections correctly takes a bit of practice, and clearly the video shows some pretty sloppy injection techniques. A spokesperson for the clinic stated the injections were performed by RN’s, LPN’s and Physicians.
Generally speaking I would say that most injection techniques from nurses (at least what I’ve witnessed) are of a fairly consistently high standard. Which begs the question – why are the people in the video sloppy? Are they simply not well trained, or is it the repetition of mass injections causing people to slacken off by the time they perform hundreds of injections back to back? Would we expect to see a certain percentage of sloppy injection techniques like this in our mass vaccination clinics also?
