We’ve started a national investigation looking into insulin prescribing and administration in hospitals.

It was launched after we were notified of a reference event where a patient was administered an overdose of concentrated insulin while under the care of an acute hospital.

The investigation will focus on factors which compromise safety when health professionals administer concentrated insulin through insulin pen devices.
