The St. Joseph Mercy Dialysis Services Unit provides hemodialysis to inpatients and to outpatients who have not yet transferred to a chronic outpatient unit.

Peritoneal dialysis provides on-going support to this population including initial training and routine physician, nurse, social worker, and dietician visits as well as phone triage. Catheter placement for peritoneal dialysis is done in this area.

  • Placement of lines used for dialysis within the dialysis suite
  • Initial treatment of clotted lines coming from outpatient chronic facilities
