Tamper Resistant Seals

Wondering who is using tamper resistant seals on oral liquid syringes? We prepare a lot of oral liquid doses for our pediatric patients and have historically used tamper resistant seals. New staff are saying they never used the seals at their previous institutions and questioning the practice, especially since we have a staffing shortage in peds. I consider using the seals as a best practice from a safety, product integrity, and diversion standpoint but interested in the practice at other institutions. Thank you for your thoughts and time.
