Answer:
Coumadin (any setting) and Heparin (hospital setting only) are considered high risk (Drug Therapy Requiring Intensive Monitoring for Toxicity). The provider would need documentation that supports he/she is involved in the management of this medication. To consider therapy with one of these drugs as a high risk management option, we would expect to see documentation in the medical record of drug levels obtained at appropriate intervals.
