duplicate doses across tranfers

Hi, a question for Epic users,
What is your means of minimizing risk of duplicate dosing of drugs such as vancomycin when the patient receives a pre-op dose in OR, then after procedure returns to floor, then receives another dose based on an active MAR order.
Is the Transfer navigator used appropriately/effectively?
Do you use duplicate dose alerts?
Thank you for your input.
Susan
