Amos is a newly trained nurseat Mutare Provincial Hospital Out patient Department, who has just resumed duty at the treatment room ona busy Monday morning. Outside the room is a long Queue of patients waiting for treatment.
He gets a card of the next patient, while reading the prescription on the card; he is called to answer the telephone.
On coming back the patient whose card he was reading before the pahone call had gone to the toilet. He called "Next!!" and the next patients in the queue walks in; Amos washes his hands, checks the dose on the card and draws the exact amount of 80mg Gentamycin into a newly opened 2mls Vanish point retractable syringe from a clean injection trolley.
the patient tried to draw his attention that he had not come for an injection but for dressing but beacause Amos is in hurry to clear the patients, without paying attention, he asked the old man to get behind the screen for the injection the doctor had prescriped for him.
Amos went ahead and gave the injection at the outer upper quadrant of the left buttock and immediately dropped the used syringe in the safety box supplied by John Snow Inc.
