We want to thank all of our patients who are helping to keep our dialysis units as safe as possible. You have done this by:
What we are doing
Renal staff are working hard to make sure patients continue to safely get the dialysis treatment they need. Long before COVID-19, our staff often managed patients who needed to be isolated during their treatment. There are protocols in place for patients with communicable diseases and these are followed whenever necessary.
Planning for COVID-19 positive patients started many months ago and those plans will be used as needed.
Renal staff will continue to use these protocols to ensure the safety of dialysis units.
What you can do
You are an important part in ensuring our units are safe.

As we have seen in the past, hospital capacity can change. When needed, patients’ care may be transferred to another dialysis unit or facility. Read more about that here.
We appreciate your cooperation in helping keep our units, staff and all patients safe.
