Insulin Regular on floor stock

We have standardized to insulin lispro for our glycemic control insulin protocols, but we still have Regular insulin product on floor stock for those instances when it is needed for hyperkalemia.
If those hospitals that have been successful in removing Regular insulin from floor stock, how do you manage hyperkalemia situations?
thank you!
