Targeted Best Practice #9 - 'Ensure all appropriate antidotes, reversal agents, and rescue agents are readily available.'

Has anyone completed ISMP TBP #9 and created/identified a list of antidotes, reversal agents, and rescue agents that can be administered immediately in emergency situations? We have the typical naloxone and flumazenil on override, diphenhydramine/hydrocortisone and famotidine for anaphylaxis and our adult ICU's have neostimine and sugammadex.

Curious if other institutions have created a list to see if we need to make any updates in order to complete this best practice and would appreciate any shared documents/protocols/policies!

Thanks
