    I agree with you completely, but also find it odd that the pens hadn't come from the pharmacy with individual patient labels. Where I work (and in other hospitals where I have worked in the past), pharmacies don't dispense medications for individual patients without labeling them specifically.

On one hand, very dissapointing a VA employee did it, but a positive that it was caught and reported in the long run.
    Good point,I agree. The, so called, "patient's advocate" in civilian hospitals do nothing but "cover the asses" of the people who screw up in the hospital. It's a waste of breath to talk to them. They are paid by the hospitals.

    Thanks, the pump. My wife has diabetes. I have been giving her shots for years.

    I hardly ever hurt her when I do but it makes me sad when I do.

    Yeah, I've been blown up 3 times because this "goberment" sent me galavanting all over the world fighting for I still don't know what. I think they owe me some healthcare for that. As opposed to someone like you who would milk their employer for everything they're worth because a "Caution: Wet Floor" sign wasn't placed on the obviously wet floor. Get a clue.
    And of course the troll aka LiberalAvenger liked that post. Standard.

    I liked your post, too.

    I'll let the troll remark slide, this time.
