Point-of-care service means that patients can see a nurse, be tested, get results, learn whether an adjustment to their medication is necessary, have their questions answered and be on their way-usually all within 30 minutes.
Because of new equipment in Winona Health’s Coumadin Clinic used by specially trained nurses, most patients can be tested with a simple finger prick test instead of making a separate trip to the lab for a blood draw and waiting for results.
Nurses also serve AC Clinic patients through home care agencies, Rushford Clinic and area long-term care residences.
The Coumadin Clinic is staffed by RNs who provide patient education, interpret lab test results for Protime/INR’s and adjust coumadin/warfarin medication doses according to specific guidelines approved by the Coumadin Clinic Director, Dr. Richard Ferris.
