Dextrose and PET Scans


I am wondering if any other Epic users have come up with a good way to alert pharmacists and providers about an active PET Scan order when a dextrose containing med is ordered? We currently have a pharmacy consult at the time of ordering but the time between ordering the scan and it being completed there is room for a dextrose to slip through.
