MAR documentation of non-pharmacy items (CHG baths)

In efforts to help bring attention to scheduled CHG (chlorhexidine gluconate) wipe baths, our CLABSI taskforce is requesting it would be helpful if these orders populated the MAR.

Do any other hospitals populate CHG to the MAR? If you have experience with CHG on the MAR any input would be appreciated (barcoding, bypass pharmacy verification, etc.)

Thanks,
Jenn
