Clinic Medications

For ambulatory locations that have medications but not within an ADC, how do you decide/limit what medications should be stocked in those clinics?
These locations are high risk for errors from medications because of lack of barcode scanning and no ADC to prevent wrong dispense, expired medications, etc.
-Do you have a decision tree to guide what medications are allowed for clinic locations?
-Do you have a committee that decides or is it a single person?
