Pediatric peritoneal dialysis - do you use dual-signoff?

Hi,
We recently got a request from our pediatric acute care nurses to add pediatric peritoneal dialysis fluids to our EMR dual-signoff list. They feel it is infrequent, the cycler is unfamiliar to them, and it is operates outside of pump/EMR interoperability. We are also trying to limit our required dual-signoff meds.

Do any of your Children's Hospitals have this process associated with dual-signoff, or have had frequent errors associated with it?

Thank you,
