Abstract

Abstract: Many long-held practices surrounding newborn injections lack evidence and have unintended consequences. The choice of needles, injection techniques, and pain control methods are all factors for decreasing pain and improving the safety of intramuscular injections. Using practices founded on the available best evidence, nurses can reduce pain, improve the quality and safety of care, and set the stage for long-term compliance with vaccination schedules.
