Chronic Renal Failure (CRF) or Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is the end result of a progressive loss of kidney function. As this is a gradual process, the loss of function may take place so slowly that symptoms of kidney failure only appear when they’re close to completely lost.
The final stage of chronic kidney diseases is known as the End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). Once this stage has begun, kidneys are no longer able to remove enough waste and excess fluid from the body. Because of this, dialysis is required in order to remove these toxins from the body and prevent patient sickness.
At Haym Salomon Home for Nursing & Rehabilitation located in Brooklyn, NY, we provide both pre and post dialysis care.
Kidney Failure Care Involves
- Constant assessment of hypertension presence/degree
- Blood pressure monitoring
- Application of postural changes (sitting, lying and standing)
- Vital signs
- Laboratory and diagnostic studies
- Intake and output
- The dialysis site
- Nutritional Intervention
Although dialysis itself is not painful, the process of ensuring effective patient care and process oversight requires great attention to detail. It also requires thoroughness, a commitment to success and a welcoming friendly face.
Our staff is highly trained to assist patients with kidney failure through the dialysis journey.
