ABSTRACT:
Injection administration isone of the greatest responsibilities of a nurse. It is an integral part of the nurse’s role, therefore the nurses must adapt the principles and techniques of medication administration to render quality nursing care. This study aimed to assess the injection administration practices among staff nurses working in selected hospital and analyzing the practices with current injection administration literature. A quantitative research approach with analytical research design was adopted. 100 staff nurses were selected through non probability convenient sampling technique. Data was collected using observational checklist. Out of 100 staff nurses observed for injection administration, 70 staff nurses administered intravenous injection and 30 staff nurses administered intramuscular injection. The collected data was analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics. Study showed that majority of the staff nurses 28 (93.3%) were having good intramuscular injection administration practices and 36 (51.4%) staff nurses had good intravenous injection administration practices. Study also revealed that there is no significant association of intramuscular and intravenous injection administration practices with age, gender, educational qualification, area of work and work experience. Total 43 literatures were referred for analyzing the findings related to practices of intramuscular and intravenous injection administration.
