At-Home Hemodialysis Monitoring

At-home hemodialysis gives you the convenience of receiving hemodialysis at home with the confidence that your health is still being closely monitored by healthcare professionals.
Contact your dialysis care team 24/7.

We’re here to help, 24/7

You may be doing dialysis at home, but you’re never alone. If you ever have questions about your equipment or your health, we’re here with 24/7 on-call nursing coverage. Together with a technical support team, your on-call, home-dialysis nurse will work with you to provide answers or solutions for everything from health concerns to equipment malfunctions. Your nurse will also give you a special local number for you to call.
Check in with your home hemodialysis team.

Monthly check-ins with your team

In addition to daily support and health monitoring, you’ll also have a scheduled monthly check-in at your local dialysis center and a meeting with your care team. Making sure your at-home hemodialysis treatment and overall care plan are working for you can help you stay your healthiest—so you can live your fullest. Your monthly check-in is also a good time to ask any questions or discuss ongoing care with your doctor or nurse.

Advocate for your best health

While there’s plenty of support and monitoring, be sure and speak up immediately to your nephrologist (kidney doctor) or another member of your at-home hemodialysis care team if you aren’t feeling well. Your doctor may want to make adjustments to your care plan, so don’t wait to bring up any unusual signs or symptoms.
