RUSHVILLE — The Protime Clinic is a physician directed, nurse managed out-patient clinic for patients taking anticoagulation medication. These medications require close monitoring of blood levels and dosage adjustments to help reduce possible life-threatening complications.  

The RMH Protime Clinic was started in 2009 and we have had more than 6000 visits. The clinic is staffed by two RN’s who have received special training in the management of anticoagulation medications.  

Participants in the clinic require a referral from their physician. The clinic is open Monday through Friday by appointment. For more information, contact Debbie Burge, RN at Rush Memorial Hospital 765-932-7502.
