Oxytocin Best Practices

Can anyone comment on anesthesiologists infusing oxytocin wtihout an infusion pump in the OR setting after the baby is delivered? We're finding that in our 8 hospital system, this seems to be standard practice by them. I'm curious what others and ISMP have to say about this.

Thanks in advance,
