What do nephrology nurses do at a dialysis center?

Nurses take care of people, they provide care.

The responsibilities of the nursing staff include:
  • checking patients’ vital signs and discussing them with them to assess their condition
  • educating patients about their health problem and the treatment they receive and answering any questions
  • supervision of the dialysis session from beginning to end care
  • proper administration of medication according to the instructions of doctors
  • Evaluate patients’ response to dialysis and medication and take immediate action where necessary continuous monitoring of patients and informing doctors about any changes in their daily conditions that came to their notice providing quality care with discretion and respect for the patient’s personality.
Talk to the nurse who cares for you
  • Want to know why you feel a certain way?
  • Do you have questions about your health? Need an explanation for a medical instruction?
  • Ask your nurse every time you go to the dialysis center, a nurse will talk to you to find out how you are feeling.
  • It’s the right time to ask all your questions so you can get the answers you need.
What topics will you talk about with your nephrologist at our center
  • Your nephrologist can answer questions about your specific condition and related treatment.
  • You can ask your nephrologist about the tests patients undergo and any suggested treatment plans or variants.
  • If you feel unwell or want to explore different treatment options (medication), talk to your nephrologist first.
  • Changes in your treatment without the knowledge of your nephrologist can affect your health.
  • If you feel tired and sick, your nephrologist may order new tests to determine if your treatment is effective and to make any adjustments. If you have other health problems that may affect your kidneys, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, you can ask your nephrologist about ways to manage these conditions.
  • Your nephrologist will work with your other doctors to help you manage these conditions so you can stay as healthy as possible.
  • It is important to seek the advice of your nephrologist before trying over-the-counter medicines, herbal medicines or dietary supplements. Do not hesitate to talk to your nephrologist about issues that affect your quality of life.
  • If you want to start an exercise program, quit smoking or make other lifestyle changes, seek guidance from your nephrologist.
  • If you have problems with restless legs syndrome, skin problems or sexual dysfunction, your nephrologist can help you with these conditions, as it may be the result of kidney disease.
