Nothing in life prepares us to navigate hospital care for the people we love.

CampaignZERO is out to change that.

Dangerous and deadly blood clots afflict more than 40,000[3] people every year.

Hospitalized patients are especially at risk because of long bed rest and little activity. They are also more likely to have had a recent heart attack, or given birth, or had some sort of injury to the lower body, which increase the risk of blood clotting.

If a blood clot travels to the lungs, it can cause a blockage — known as a pulmonary embolism (PE) or lung clot — a third of all lung clots cause death.

The good news is that blood clots are usually preventable: special elastic stockings, “pulsing boots” and medications to thin the blood are effective.


Bring CampaignZERO’s checklist with simple to-dos so you will know how to work with the nurses and doctors to help make sure your loved one doesn’t suffer a deadly clot.
