Patient :A relative has informed me that she has an Epinephrine injection pen, but was vague on what it should be used for or what she is allergice to. I see this person often. It was my understanding that misuse could be dangerous. What should I do? What is the protocol for patient's who have been perscriped an epi pen in terms of telling others about it?
