Blood Clot Prevention and Treatment - Bronson Battle Creek Hospital
Because hospital patients often have to stay in bed for long periods of time, any patient who is admitted to the hospital is at increased risk of developing a blood clot in the veins (known as venous thromboembolism). Blood clots can break off and travel to other parts of the body and cause serious problems, even death. Fortunately, there are safe, effective, and proven methods to prevent blood clots or to treat them when they occur.
The measures listed below show how Bronson Battle Creek Hospital is providing recommended care known to prevent or treat blood clots and how often blood clots occur that could have been prevented.
