Norton King’s Daughters’ Health offers the Coumadin Clinic to make it easier for patients to monitor their Coumadin (blood thinner) levels. If you have questions, please call (812) 801-0853. All patients are welcome with a referral from their provider (physician/nurse practitioner).
The purpose of the Coumadin Clinic is to effectively monitor your Coumadin (warfarin) therapy. Coumadin is a blood thinner. If your levels are too high, you may bleed too easily or it might be difficult to stop bleeding should you cut or scratch yourself. If your levels are too low, you may run a higher risk of developing blood clots.
After being referred by your provider, you will have an individual, one-on-one meeting with a clinical pharmacist from Norton King’s Daughters’ Health, rather than meeting with someone from your doctor’s office. The Coumadin Care Clinic offers a simple finger stick rather than drawing blood from your arm. A machine resembling a glucometer will then test your blood. Results are available within minutes and sent directly to your provider. If a dosage change is required, the pharmacist will make the change before you leave the Care Clinic office. A reminder sheet is sent home with you that includes your current dose of Coumadin and your next appointment date and time.
Clinic hours:Mondays: 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.Wednesdays: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays: 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
LocationThe Coumadin Clinic is located near the Outpatient Services desk on the first floor of the hospital. Please check in at Outpatient Services when you arrive for your appointment.
Contact your provider’s office and ask if you may have your Coumadin (warfarin) therapy monitored by the Coumadin (anticoagulation) Clinic at Norton KDH. Your provider will need to fill out a referral form and send it to our clinic office. After the referral is received, a member of our clinic staff will contact you and schedule your first appointment.
