    I will carefully explain to Patrick and his parents why you cannot do this, and give the injection as ordered

    Explanation:

    IM injection is known as the intramuscular injection, which involves the use of 22-23 guage of 1 - 1.5 inches, and are given at angle 90 degree. This is usually adjusted because of the thickness of the site where it is to be used.

    This injection can also be described as a technique used to deliver a medication deep into the muscles, and this makes the injection to enter the bloodstream immediately or quickly.

    In this case, tiny needles can not be used because the site is muscle and this can be break the tiny needle. So, this should be explained to Patrick and his parent.
