Nurse practitioners and registered nurses at Enloe Medical Center's Anticoagulation Clinic work under the direction of each patient's physician to provide safe, therapeutic care of those on anticoagulant medication.
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; mechanical heart valves; or those who have had deep vein thrombosis, a pulmonary embolism or other forms of blood clots. Patients must be referred by a physician.
Scheduled visits at our clinic include:
- Education for the patient and family
- Dosage adjustment
- Lab testing using finger-stick technology
Recognized for excellence
Enloe's Anticoagulation Clinic received a 2004 Roche Dream Award for Excellence in Anticoagulation Management. Roche Diagnostics gives the award for excellence in helping patients manage anticoagulation medications.
