Staff-Assisted Home Hemodialysis is defined as dialysis treatments that are rendered by a licensed professional (Registered Nurse or Licensed Vocational Nurse) under the supervision of a Nephrologist in the patient’s home. An experienced dialysis nurse will come to your home to provide this service. Staff-Assisted Home Hemodialysis is a rapidly growing treatment option that allows you to receive one-on-one care in the comfort of your home. Treatments are traditionally administered three times a week for a duration of three to four hours each treatment. This unique option is family-oriented and supports lifestyle initiatives. Everything is centered around you! Your doctor provides oversight for home hemodialysis care. The dialysis equipment is a single use system and remains in your home. Water sampling, other environmental culturing, maintenance, and servicing of the hemodialysis equipment are maintained in your home.

Patient care conferences will be held monthly with you and your health care support team. Pick-up services for Biohazard waste are scheduled and disposed per regulatory guidelines.
