Long Acting Antipsychotics

Does anyone have mitigation strategies used to ensure that long acting injectables are prescribed appropriately at discharge after starting therapy in an inpatient psychiatry setting? We have had some near miss events in which the long acting prescription was not provided at discharge. Any advice is appreciated!
