Subcutaneous injection tutorialWith subcutaneous injection, a short needle is used to inject a drug into the tissue layer between the skin and the muscle (known as subcutaneous tissue). Pinch an inch of skin and insert the needle at a 90º angle. If you cannot pinch at least 1 inch of tissue, you may need to use a 45º angle to stay within the subcutaneous tissue (and above the muscle layer). Watch the video for details.Patient Education

QueerMed resolutely opposes the Texas Attorney General’s request for patient data.

In response to the recent inquiry from the Texas Attorney General regarding patient data, we wish to assert with utmost conviction that this request appears to be a deliberate effort to deter healthcare providers who offer gender-affirming care, as well as the families and individuals who seek such services beyond the confines of Texas and other states where prohibitive legislation exists.

It is imperative to clarify QueerMed’s unwavering stance on this matter: under no circumstances shall we disclose any HIPAA-protected patient information. Our operations are fully compliant with legal standards, and we are committed to continuing our provision of lawful care in states that have not opted to subordinate patient welfare to political agendas.
