Importance of Standards in Dialysis Water Quality

St Vincents University Hospital

Water is the common risk factor for all patients receiving hemodialysis. Errors in water treatment affect all patients on treatment in a facility at the same time. Failure to recognize poor quality water, failure to adequately treat water contaminated with chemicals, bacteria, or toxins, or failure to recognize that treatment components are not operating effectively puts hemodialysis patients at risk of injury and death. Clinical Engineers who provide expertise to Renal Units must demonstrate not only technical knowledge and skills but must also have a clinical understanding of anatomy and physiology of the kidney, chemistry and physics of the Hemodialysis machine and their applications in the process in Hemodialysis treatments
