Enloe ANTICOAGULATION CLINIC
Nurse practitioners and registered nurses at Enloe’s Anticoagulation Clinic work under the direction of each patient’s physician to provide safe, therapeutic care for those on anticoagulant medication.
Through individual assessment, monitoring and education, we help patients maintain an optimal level of anticoagulation, preventing too little or too much thinning of the blood. Patients who benefit from the clinic include those with atrial fibrillation or mechanical heart valves as well as those who have had deep vein thrombosis, a pulmonary embolism or other forms of blood clots.
Scheduled visits at our clinic include:
- Education for the patient and family
- Dosage adjustment
- Lab testing using finger-stick technology
Enloe’s clinic was the only hospital-affiliated program in California singled out for the 2004 Roche Dream Award for Excellence in Anticoagulation Management.
