Are all patients treated at the same hemodialysis machine?

Your doctor will tell you more about the way we perform hemodialysis at Marina del Rey Hospital. Rest assured that we take all the safety precautions to prevent infections.

Patients are treated at the same machine, but the hospital uses disposable devices that are thrown away after they are used. In other words, there are no chances that you have contact with the devices that were used on previous patients.

Moreover, we take all the standard measures that help us minimize the risk of spreading infections.
