Medication transportation carts

Our nursing staff is advocating for the use of locked medication carts which could be used to transport medications for multiple patients from the ADC to patient rooms for administration. Pharmacy has a number of safety concerns with the proposed process, so I am curious if anyone has been able to successfully and safely implement these types of transportation carts while remaining compliant with medication management standards.

Thank you!
