If the patient getting magnesium sulfate and sodium chloride at the same time over 4 hour period and in between they gave a 2 minute push lorazepam and they didn't stop giving the other medicine. My question is how do we code this? Do we code this as 96365, 96366x3 and 96368 for the lorazepam?

I would code the Lorazepam push as 96375-59. You cannot code it with an infusion code because it was done as a push.
