May 23, 2019 | Home Hemodialysis, News, Patient News, Staff News

Congratulations to God’s Lake Narrows and all relevant partners on the opening of the community’s new nursing station.

Alongside many other new features, the facility now has a home hemodialysis room. This room would allow an individual to do their own treatment at the health centre.

There are also home hemodialysis rooms in Mosakahiken Cree Nation and Misipawistik Cree Nation While normally home hemodialysis is done in a person’s home, sometimes there may not be enough room or the right plumbing for home dialysis equipment and supplies.

The home hemo room in the health facility removes what could be a potential barrier to self-managed treatment. Home dialysis offers more independence as well as health benefits when dialyzing more frequently. Individuals train to do their own treatment and then return home, set their own schedule and manage their own care with support from home hemodialysis care teams in Winnipeg or Brandon.

Congratulations to Red Sucker Lake and all partners on the opening of the community’s new nursing station. This station features a home hemodialysis room where a patient can complete their own treatment and store relevant supplies.
