ON the INR flow sheet there should be a band on the top section that indicates the reason for anticoagulation, AF or DVT or PE, and have the range i.e. 2.0-3.0 or 2.5 - 3.5
It would be a benefit for locums or doctors covering labs for other peoples patients as to why the patient is on anticoagulation. It should be all info on the one sheet. inr result, prescribing dosing, repeat and dx and range.
