A case that changed my practice - a near miss with warfarin


This guy's brass neck is astonishing. 1. He has a patient in such severe pain, (of sudden onset) that they cannot sleep for 3 nights and he decides to see them the following day! 2. He finds a pulseless limb and makes a referral to outpatients! 3. He has been issuing repeat prescriptions for a drug (warfarin) without checking its effectiveness (INRs) And then blames the drug for causing this clinical problem!
