Add ability to discontinue treatments in the future

Currently, if you want to discontinue a treatment, you have to do it immediately.  There should be the ability to discontinue treatments starting at a future time/date.  For example, if I want IV fluids to be given for 4 more hours, then stopped, there should be an option for "discontinue at XXXX time on XXXX day".  It should also have the option for amount of doses given.  If I want a drug given only 2 or 3 times, rather than enter each dose in separately, I should be able to sign something up for "Give 1 tab by mouth every 12 hours.  Discontinue after XXX doses"

    Hi Erik,

    You can specify a future time and date to discontinue an item. Can you clarify what you'd like to see changed?

    Hi Smart Flow Team-

    When signing a patient up for a medication/treatment option, there should be a separate drop-down menu (just like how often a treatment is given) that says "discontinue".  Then there should be an option of a specific amount of time (such as: in 1 hour, 2 hours, 24 hours etc...) or amount of treatments (after 1 treatment, 2, 3, etc...).  Thus, if i wanted a treatment like IV fluids to be given to a patient for only 8 hours.  I would select Flow rate LRS, choose my rates, and then select the discontinue dropdown and select 8 hours.

    As an added piece of information - this option should be available without having to initial off on the first cell to trigger.  Currently the discontinue option is not available until a cell is triggered on that day.
