Administering Subcutaneous Injections (Summary)
Subcutaneous injections can be administered in a few different places such as the upper arm, upper thigh, outer hip, and abdomen.
NOTE: It is important to avoid giving yourself the injection in the exact same spot every time. It is also important to avoid areas that are bruised, tender, or scarred.

NOTE: with a firm smooth motion push the needle into the skin into the space between the skin and the muscle below. Then pull the needle straight out and put the syringe into a sharps container.
