###### Question:

A healthcare professional receives the following order: Somatropin 2 mg IM three times a week.

At 0800 on 10/15/14, the healthcare professional prepares the medication to administer later that day. After reading the label (see Figure 14-13 (Links to an external site.)), she draws up all the diluent supplied with the medication (see Figure 14-14 (Links to an external site.)) and injects it into the vial. According to the drug label, the remaining medication may be refrigerated for 14 days if protected from light. She labels the vial “Exp: 0800 10/29/14. Refrigerate. 5 mg/mL” and signs it with her initials. The vial will not be exposed to light in the refrigerator. Otherwise, the healthcare professional might wrap it in foil or place it inside a paper bag.

Later that day, the healthcare professional calculates the amount to administer, based on the label,

Figure 14-13

She uses a 0.5 mL tuberculin syringe to administer the medication.
