You know that each 10 mL insulin vial contains 1000 units of insulin (100 units/mL x 10 mL/vial = 1000 units/vial), so you dispense one vial of Lantus for a one-month supply. However, since Lantus vials must be discarded after 28 days once they are in use, you enter a 28-day supply into the computer.
