Door to door, Lilly supports diabetes management in your hospital

Diabetes care isn’t limited to one floor or department. And it means providing more than insulin. So Lilly has hospital-centric solutions to help from the moment a patient comes through your doors until they leave your care. We can consult with your facility to discuss products and delivery options designed for efficiency—while never losing sight of the importance of safety.

Our goal with each institution goes beyond choosing insulins. We want to support your never-ending goal of providing the best possible diabetes care.

Select Safety Information

Changes in insulin regimen may affect glycemic control and predispose patients to hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia. Changes should be made cautiously and the frequency of blood glucose monitoring should be increased.

For more information on how they can help your institution, talk to your Lilly Diabetes Sales Representative or call The Lilly Answers Center at 1-800-LillyRx (1-800-545-5979).

Safely injecting insulin at mealtime

Administering mealtime insulin safely to each patient during their stay is a goal we share. That’s why Lilly Diabetes will provide your staff with in-house injection training presented by experienced nurses who are trained diabetes educators. We also offer training materials and videos you can use to help train staff on how to inject safely with a vial and syringe. Because we understand how important safely administering mealtime insulin is to a patients’ well-being.

Education to prepare patients for discharge

Lilly offers support resources that provide guidance to staff and their patients regarding initiation and the maintenance of mealtime insulin therapy. These include:

  • Training staff on topics ranging from general diabetes information to discharge planning
  • Teaching patients and their caregivers how to manage diabetes after they leave your care
  • Making the transition to mealtime insulin achievable for patients

Continuing diabetes care after patients leave

Because patients’ diabetes care doesn’t end when they go home, we know that the healthcare professionals at your facility work hard to ensure patients are comfortable and confident with their mealtime insulin routine. We want to support that effort.
