Quality of Care

When kidneys fail, either hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis is necessary to remove waste products from the blood. Before patients with kidney failure can start regular hemodialysis opens a new tab, a site on the body has to be created through which blood can be removed and returned during dialysis (vascular access opens a new tab).
