Healthcare Emergency Preparedness Information Gateway (ASPR TRACIE) Resource for Dialysis Centers

Healthcare Emergency Preparedness Information Gateway (ASPR TRACIE) Resource for Dialysis Centers

Disasters can significantly impact patients who are being treated with maintenance dialysis in several ways. For one, structural damage to dialysis and healthcare facilities can hamper a patient’s access to their treatment site, which can also cause a delay in the receipt of treatment. Disasters may also impact water supply, leading to “boil water advisories.” This may affect a facility’s ability to provide safe dialysis treatments to their patients.

When disasters strike, dialysis and healthcare facilities will need time to recover from the damage. This includes staff who may have been affected by the disaster and are challenged in their ability to report to work. These resources highlight lessons learned from recent events, information on dialysis center recovery, strategies for post-disaster dialysis patient care, and plans, tools, and templates that can be modified to suit facility-specific needs.
