Methotrexate for Ectopic Pregnancy

Our pharmacy compounding suite is undergoing a renovation starting mid-July, including our sterile hazardous compounding room. For any chemotherapy needed our Cancer Center across the street will compound it for us (we do a low inpatient volume). The one scenario that we don't know what to do with is methotrexate for ectopic pregnancy since this could happen overnight when our Cancer Center is closed. Any one have any contingency plans for something like this? We only have a BSC in the chemo room that will be shut down so I don't know where to have our night shift pharmacist compound the methotrexate, if needed, other than going to the Cancer Center but with only one night shift pharmacist this is almost impossible. Thanks!!
