I am looking in to the storage of aromatherapy/essential oils at our hospital. Currently, these items are used by nurses who have specific training, but not treated as an order item. They follow a nursing focused policy and document in the EHR.
1. Does your hospital use aromatherapy or essential oils?
2. Describe how they are stored - e.g. on the unit, in an ADC, on the counter etc.
3. Do you treat these items like drugs, as it relates to storage and ordering? If, so please describe.
