Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): Considerations for Providing Hemodialysis to Patients with Suspected or Confirmed COVID-19 in Acute Care Settings   [open pdf - 475KB]

From the Document: "Based on a patient's clinical status and the facility's resources, clinicians can decide to provide either intermittent hemodialysis or CRRT to patients requiring hemodialysis. For infection control purposes, limit the healthcare personnel (HCP) exposed to patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 to those essential for their care. In the intensive care unit (ICU), CRRT is usually managed by an ICU nurse; due to this, use of CRRT may help limit the number of HCP exposed to the patient. For ICU patients with end-stage renal disease with a dialysis fistula or graft, clinicians can weigh the risks and benefits of placing a dialysis catheter for CRRT (in order to limit HCP exposure) or performing intermittent hemodialysis."
