Ambulatory BCMA

Hello! for those that have implemented Ambulatory BCMA...

Do you prepare your medications and immunizations at the patient "bedside" (i.e., in the patient exam rooms)?

Or do you prepare them in a "medication preparation space" and then bring to the room for administration?

...Recognizing that best practice inpatient is for scanning to happen closest to the patient - but worrying about how this translates to ambulatory practice. (cleanliness, no interruption zone, peds patient, centralization of meds / product / supplies)
