using injectable blood thinners (enoxaparin, dalteparin, heparin, etc) to PREVENT clots

You'll see more focus on using injectable blood thinners (enoxaparin, dalteparin, heparin, etc) to PREVENT clots.

Many inpatients are at high risk of clots. For example, being bedridden for several days can cause blood to pool in the legs and form clots...that can move into the lungs, heart, or brain. This can be deadly.

Injectable blood thinners do a great job at keeping the blood thin and preventing clots. The problem is that these are "high-alert" medications...and a small dosing error can be fatal.
