Needle Fail

I grabbed a needle to do an injection yesterday and this is what it looked like:



In all my many years of needle usage, I don't think I've ever seen that before....

  1. I'm a diabetic. I've pulled syringes out of the bag to find the needle is pushed through the side of the cap. OW.

    That never happens with short needles, dammit.

  2. Looks like a compounding thing. Why it was in your area. Is a good question.
    It helps vent the drug vial and makes multiple vial punctures possible with out ruining the integrety of the vial stopper.

  4. Looks like an offset-needle that works on the same principle as an offset screwdriver for when the patient is in an awkward location, like hiding behind a bookcase.

  5. Throw a Powerbait on the end, catch you a whopper.

  6. My favorite was the time I stuck a perfectly straight needle into a patient (a horse, I'm a vet) and he spasms so hard it bent like that IN THE MUSCLE. Imagine my momentary confusion as to why I could not pull out the needle.
