The Anticoagulation Clinic at UnaVie Cardiology Center is a physician directed, nurse managed service. All registered nurses working in the clinic have received special training in anticoagulation therapy management.
We specialize in advanced Coumadin management using close monitoring which involves face-to-face contact versus telephone contact for more responsive care.
Participation in the Anticoagulation Clinic program is voluntary. Patients are free to choose monitoring with the Clinic or to continue monitoring with their physician. An advantage to our Clinic is that blood is obtained from a simple finger stick rather than a regular blood draw. Testing is complete within seconds, and nurses then use physician approved protocols to adjust doses imediately, if necessary. To join our program, patients must be capable of following directions or have an able caregiver who can assist them regarding their care and diet at home.
To join our program:
1. Ask your physician.
2. If appropriate, you physician will provide a referral to our clinic.
3. A nurse from the clinic will contact you to set-up an appointment.
