  • Overview

    Patients in hospital settings are often screened and promptly treated for venous thromboembolism, or VTE, but perhaps less commonly in long-term care, even though these patients may be at risk. Dr. T.S. Dharmarajan, clinical director of the division of geriatrics at Montefiore Medical Center (North Division) in the Bronx, New York, discusses the medical conditions in long-term care that put patients at risk for VTE, and ways to assess patients for the condition. What anticoagulation medications and treatments may be used for treating VTE in long-term care? Should long-term care clinicians treat VTE as aggressively as hospitals often do, or are there other unique considerations clinicians should keep in mind for managing patients at risk for VTE in long-term care? Dr. Eric Tangalos hosts.
