Storage of light-sensitive medications

I would be appreciative if someone could share their institutions policy/procedure or any advice regarding the storage of light-sensitive medications in automatic dispensing cabinets. We are particularly interested in areas with see-through doors where there is no light protection (example a Pyxis Tower)

Transporting light-sensitive medications

What is anyone's department's practice hen transporting light sensitive medications from the pharmacy to the ADCs on the floors? Since the medication will be exposed to light for an unknown period of time, are they transported in light sensitive bags? Is anyone aware of a best practice on this topic?
