Insulin Pens


Does anyone use insulin pens for inpatient administration? If so, what is your administration process? Storage? On unit? In patient room? How is the pen itself labeled? Labeled with patient information bar code or are you just scanning the pen itself at administration? Any information you provide would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
