Differentiate Services While Addressing Overall Quality of Care
Easing Patients Into Dialysis
Many patients begin their dialysis experience by crashing onto in-center treatments due to disease progression, infection, or hospital treatments. Transitional Dialysis is a patient centric approach to gently easing patients into dialysis using your existing in-center infrastructure and staff.
Improving Patient and Staff Safety
Reducing Costs With Improved Staff Efficiencies
Improve Infection Control in Your Facility
Reduce Transportation Costs
Patients in a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) who require dialysis therapy are typically transported to and from a dialysis clinic three times a week often at an additional cost. NxStage products and therapies can help you eliminate these costs with an on-site dialysis solution.
Differentiating your nursing home by providing on-site dialysis may also increase hospital referrals and clients.
