Covid-19 and What It Means For The Dialysis Community

Below is a link to an episode of The New Normal (an online documentary series). This roughly five minute episode takes a look at how the emergence of Covid-19 has impacted those on dialysis. Unlike patients with some other conditions, patients in kidney failure don’t have the option to stay home and put off dialysis treatment, even in the face of a pandemic.

This informative piece does a good job showcasing the physical and emotional toll this takes not only on the patients, but also the caregivers and the risk their loved ones take on as part of the process. It’s a short episode but worth checking out:
