Question: Reason for Not Administering Antithrombotic Therapy?

MD states in H+P: "I am reluctant to use any antiplatelet therapy in view of his AVM." Consult states "I agree with Dr's decision to not start on any antiplatelet agents keeping in view this significant arteriovenous malformation". Although the word "antithrombotic" is not used, do these statements meet the requirement for a *Reason For Not Administering/Prescribing Antithrombotic Therapy*.

Answer:

Select 'Yes' for *Reason for Not Administering Antithrombotic by End of Hospital Day 2 / Prescribing Antithrombotic as Discharge*. The category of antithrombotics includes both anticoagulants and antiplatelet agents. Antiplatelets are documented with the reason, so there is linkage.
