Free Water for Hypernatremia

We’ve recently been reviewing how our organization orders free water for hypernatremia in Epic, and is interested in learning about how this is performed in other organizations.

How does your organization place orders for free water for the indication of hypernatremia? Where is the order placed, who reviews the order, and how is administration documented?

Thank you
