Bar Code Med Admin (BCMA) and Pt Involvement

We are working towards getting all of our units to a BCMA goal of 95% for pt and med scanning and one idea that we wanted to try was getting the patient involved as well. I am curious if anyone else has done any work in this regards? Our first thought was to start with messaging in the pt rooms along the line of signs that say "did your nurse scan you meds today?"

Appreciate any comments on sites that did implement something similar.
