facility use of propellent sprays

How does your facility classify use of propellant sprays, such as Hurricaine spray? Are they single-patient vs. multi-patient use? CDC recommendations specifically focus on manipulation of multi-dose injectables in close proximity to the patient, but what about other formulations that could be considered prone to contamination?
