Hemodialysis (often simply referred to as “dialysis”) is the process of removing toxins from the blood of a patient with acute or chronic renal (kidney) failure. Normally these toxins are removed from the blood by the kidney. When the kidney is not functioning properly, dialysis is sometimes recommended in order to allow the patient to live a longer life.
Our skilled nursing center will schedule dialysis treatments with the resident’s current dialysis facility to in order to provide continuity of care.
Before initiating dialysis, patients may feel ill and lack the strength for everyday life and social activities. After a few weeks on dialysis, patients should begin to feel better. With the help of our healthcare staff and the latest medical technologies, many dialysis patients find that they can still lead full, active lives.
