SSI with novolog/humalog vs regular insulin

Hi All, I am used to using humalog/novolog insulin for SSI orders. My hospital has regular insulin SSI. Once injected, Regular insulin takes 30 minutes to begin working, peaks between 2 and 4 hours and hangs on for 6 to 8 hours, long after the meal stopped raising the blood sugar. Humalog and Novolog, on the other hand, begin working in about 10 minutes, peaks at one to one and a half hours and are gone in about three and a half to four hours. Just curious to know if you have seen one work... SSI with novolog/humalog vs regular insulin
