Better care for dialysis patients

06-Apr-2016

“Because more nurses can do the test, I don’t have to change my schedule anymore. As a dialysis patient who spends a lot of time in hospital, my time is precious. This makes my life better.”
Louis Levesque

All dialysis patients now get their transonic tests when they need them. The test shows whether the patient’s vein, linked to a dialysis machine by a tube, works properly. To ensure all patients get their tests on time, Regina General’s Renal Unit improved scheduling practices and trained staff to do the test.
