Phytonadione, or vitamin K, is required for blood clotting, because it is used in the production of substances called clotting factors. If these clotting factors cannot form, the blood cannot clot correctly. Without vitamin K and clotting factors, you are at risk of dangerous bleeding; in certain situations, even a small cut can result in your losing a lot of blood.
