What is On-Site Home Hemodialysis?
On-site home dialysis is a growing movement in which dialysis providers and Skilled Nursing Facility, like Westlake Convalescent Hospital, are partnering to offer Skilled Nursing Facility patients requiring dialysis with on-site treatments in the Skilled Nursing Facility they reside.
Benefits of On-Site Home Hemodialysis
On-site home hemodialysis eliminates the need for transportation to off-site dialysis treatments, usually at least three times per week.
For patients who may not be able to tolerate abrupt hemodynamic changes often associated with conventional hemodialysis three times per week, on-site home hemodialysis offers individualized treatment options, including more frequent therapy when medically necessary.
Westlake Convalescent Hospital offers Dialysis service to patients whose kidneys can no longer support the body’s needs. This service is needed depending on the following:
- Capacity Of Your Kidneys
- Amount Fluid Weight You Gain Between Treatments
- Patient’s Body Size
- Type Of Artificial Kidney Used
