"Barn" doors

Do you use "barn" doors (top and bottom halves of the door open separately) at your institution, particularly in behavioral health (BH) areas? Any pros/cons or regulatory issues to share? I would also be interested in hearing about BH room designs for prepping and administering meds where patients come to the med room (versus the meds being taken to the patients).
