Dialysis Nurse Requirements
Dialysis nurses care for patients experiencing chronic or acute kidney failure. They are experts in kidney disease, kidney function, and dialysis administration. They should be familiar with the two types of dialysis — hemodialysis and peritoneal — so they are able to administer, monitor, and educate patients and families for both types.
The main duties of a dialysis nurse can include correct set-up and operation of dialysis machines and equipment, safe administration of dialysis and medications, keen patient assessment, careful patient monitoring, educating patients and family/caregivers on administration and other issues regarding kidney health and kidney disease management, and collaborating with their nephrology team members to provide the best possible patient care.
Who Works in Dialysis?
Dialysis nurses can work in a variety of settings, so that setting will determine who might work alongside a dialysis RN day to day. Dialysis nurses can work in ICUs, dialysis units, hospice centers, home health, nursing homes, transplant centers, and dialysis clinics. Team members working in dialysis can include dialysis RNs, dialysis patient care techs, dialysis LPN/LVNs, nephrologists, clinical managers, dieticians or nutritionists, administrative staff, and social workers/case managers.
Who’s Treated by Dialysis?
Patients in nephrology who require dialysis have kidneys that are unable to perform normal, necessary functions are they’re receiving dialysis to replicate some of the important functions done by healthy kidneys. Dialysis basically mimics kidney function by removing toxins that are normally expelled by a healthy renal system — regulating blood and cleansing the body of excess salt, water, fluids, and waste. Common reasons that a patient needs dialysis include kidney disease, renal failure, renal transplant patients, diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease.
