Pre-printed medication charts

Hi Everyone,
We use a paper based medication chart and one area of our institution is contemplating the risks/benefits of pre-printing medication orders on the charts. The prescriber would then indicate which orders are required for administration.
Does anyone have any experience with this type of system?
