I had a pt today with a INR of 6.5. I called the doctor. He told me to hold todays coumadin and monitor for bleeding. I work nights and was ready to leave. So I put that order in. Told the nurse comiing on and manager what happened and what the doc said.
But it really didn't seem like enough.
Possibly they will change the dose later on in the day as they often do since managers call with the results later and talk to the docs about the levels when there normal. I'm sure thats what there gonna do.
