Dawson.Nancy11@mayo.edu Clinical Profile


Nancy L. Dawson, M.D., has an interest in improving the quality and safety of patient care in the hospital. This includes increasing the safety of high-risk medications and improving transitions of care.

Focus areas

  • Management of warfarin dosing and safety for the hospitalized patient
  • Improving the safety of insulin and its administration in the hospital, along with decreasing hypoglycemia in hospitalized patients
  • Reducing errors associated with anticoagulants in the hospital, including heparin, warfarin, low molecular weight heparin and fondaparinux
  • Improving the transitions of care by reducing the number of patients who are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days

Significance to patient care

Improved medication safety reduces errors and potential patient harm. The goal of reducing 30-day readmissions by improving the transition of patients from hospital to home is to ensure patients have the necessary tools and understanding to be successful at home after discharge. This improves not only their care but also their satisfaction with the care.
