Dialysis: Overview

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:41 by admin
Kidney dialysis machines perform some functions of the kidneys. People whose kidneys no longer function rely on dialysis to stay alive.

A recent report found that many dialysis clinics are understaffed. Such understaffing may lead to the spread of the hepatitis C virus. Many dialysis users are infected with hepatitis C. The disease is easily spread in the dialysis environment unless certain sanitary precautions are followed. Understaffed clinics may forgo such precautions.

Baxter International recently announced the global recall of certain of the company's dialysis filters. Please click the drop-down box below for more information regarding the Baxter recall.

See your doctor if you have contracted hepatitis C after undergoing dialysis. In addition, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
