Prepping Kidney Dialysis Patients for Tropical Storm Sandy
By John Curran
Fresenius Medical Care and other kidney dialysis treatment centers were watching Tropical Storm Sandy with a wary eye as it made its trek towards the Atlantic seaboard. Unlike many other patients, kidney failure patients may have reduced mobility. More importantly, they need their dialysis machines to continue to work no matter the weather.
It is one reason that New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg began moving kidney dialysis and other patients in danger from hospitals near the water in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens Boroughs. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has evacuated most of the barrier islands, which would include cities like Atlantic City, Seaside Heights and the Wildwoods served by Fresenius Medical Care.
However, many patients who used to face GranuFlo heart attack side effects from Fresenius' recalled drugs actually receive treatment at home. The company has pushed this cost-cutting measure in spite of the fact that NaturaLyte stroke side effects would have been minimized with more monitoring, not less. If you or someone you know is on kidney dialysis, here are a few tips:
1) Make sure you have standard emergency supplies, like first aid kits, flashlights a day or two of food as well as blankets and clothes.
2) Make sure you know the emergency procedures if you receive kidney dialysis at home to make sure that your treatment will continue even in case of power outages.
3) If you go to a Fresenius Medical Care center or other medical facility, make sure you have contact numbers and a ride if you need to travel to another facility in case of damage or generator failure.
While kidney dialysis patients no longer have to worry about GranuFlo heart attack side effects, Tropical Storm Sandy reminds those across the United States that maintaining care can be difficult during storms.
