Emergency Preparedness Considerations for Hospital Owned/Operated Dialysis Unit

Emergencies happen. Extreme weather events, wildfires, large-scale power outages, infectious disease outbreaks, and more can all disrupt day-to-day operations for renal care with little to no advanced warning. That’s why it’s crucial for healthcare administrators to develop and adopt an emergency preparedness plan that addresses the unique demands of kidney treatment as a part of the hospitals overall emergency plan.

Our team has compiled a thorough checklist of action items to help you identify opportunities and proactively establish a plan specific to your hospital’s needs.
