  1. RE: EpiPens — use of these in hospitals and clinics was just good marketing and sales. A solution looking for a problem. Clinical staff at hospitals and clinics are or should be trained on how to draw and administer an injection. Even patients giving their loved one’s allergy shots at home already have the skill set to accomplish the same thing without using the expensive EpiPen. Kudos to the Utah pharmacist for seeing the light.
