Your partner in providing safe and compliant dialysis services in the acute care setting
More Than a Machine
Acute kidney care doesn’t start or stop at the dialysis machine. Our team helps hospitals manage renal care more effectively and offers:
In-depth knowledge of policy and dialysis procedures
Preparation and support for hospital survey readiness
Care plan development and compassionate patient care
Safe dialysis treatment according to doctors’ orders
High quality, efficiency, and help achieve lower overall costs
FINDING NEW WAYS TO OVERCOME CHALLENGES
From the day-to-day to the unexpected, our team works directly with your team to ensure you continue to operate at the highest level, regardless of the circumstances.
Our team is trained and prepared to support surveys by The Joint Commission helping ensure your operations are compliant, especially when it comes to the areas of focus around standing orders, remote assessment, and exposure to blood and sharps.
Operational performance is assessed in detailed quarterly reports. Technological and care coordination strategies can help address length of stay, readmissions, day-of-discharge dialysis, and other key indicators.
Our nationally recognized rapid-response team can deliver supplemental dialysis machines and equipment, provide additional trained personnel, and mitigate limited or unsafe water supply issues.
With so many variables in kidney care, experience and knowledge matter. Our Fresenius Kidney Care Inpatient Dialysis team assists acute dialysis program Medical Directors to better serve hospital patients. Our specially trained dialysis nurses and technicians are informed observers who help anticipate needed information, have answers at the ready, and can identify indications of emerging issues.
