Insulin drip protocol

Good morning,

I was at a hospital last week that uses the Yale protocol for non-DKA insulin infusions and the protocol is so complicated that titration adjustment errors occur, even when two nurses are double-checking every aspect of each dosage adjustment.

If anyone is using a relatively simple but effective insulin protocol can you please post?
