The Western Reserve Hospital Anticoagulation Clinic is designed to serve patients who are prescribed anticoagulation medications, including warfarin (Coumadin), on an outpatient basis. Anticoagulants are medications that treat and prevent blood clots. Since these medications can be dangerous and require extra monitoring, our clinic will collaborate with referring physicians to help provide comprehensive oversight of each patient's care. Patients on anticoagulants typically need to be seen more frequently and benefit from more thorough education.
During the visit, a specially trained pharmacist will monitor and manage each patient's therapy to achieve the desired outcome with the least adverse effects. Our services include:
It is important for our pharmacists to review each patient's current medications at each appointment. We ask patients to bring a complete list (including supplements and over-the-counter products) to each appointment.
