Statement from Leadership

The health of all patients, staff and community partners is the top priority of Centers for Dialysis Care. Clinical and management leadership are continually monitoring local, state and federal agencies for the latest updates regarding guidelines specific to COVID-19. Specific care protocols have been implemented which follow all recommended guidelines. Operational adjustments are made as soon as new guidelines are issued.

It is extremely important that all patients come for their dialysis treatments. This reduces the chances of hospitalization and potential exposure to COVID-19.


What is being done to protect patients and staff from COVID-19?

We are committed to ensuring the safety of our patients and CDC care team. This checklist offers some simple but effective measures we have implemented across all CDC facilities.

Staff with symptoms are not permitted to work. Protocols are in place to treat these patients under specific conditions as recommended by the Center for Disease Control.

Strict infection control measures including the use of personal protective equipment as recommended by the Center for Disease Control are being followed. This includes instructing patients to wash hands before and after dialysis.

Enhanced cleaning and disinfection of equipment, chairs, and work surfaces has been implemented. This includes enhanced cleaning of all public spaces.

What can you do to protect yourself at home?

  • Practice good hand hygiene. Wash hands frequently.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes.
  • Clean and disinfect items you touch frequently. Regular cleaning spray works fine.
  • Contact your facility if you have a fever, new cough or
    difficulty breathing before you come to dialysis.
