Non-formulary medications in smart pump library

Hi - we just recently went live with B.Braun pump integration and are running into a few IV medications (primarily antibiotics) that are not currently in our smart pumps. Due to low use, we have not added these to formulary, but are concerned that there could be administration errors if they are not built in the pump. How are other institutions handling the addition of non-formulary medications in their smart pump library?
