COVID-19 Resources for Dialysis Nurses & Techs
The COVID-19 has thrown much of our everyday lives into uncertainty. We understand that many travel dialysis nurses and techs may be worried about providing quality care and protecting themselves from the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) offers helpful information specifically for dialysis facilities to help control the spread of COVID-19 to patients and staff. We recommend reading the resources provided to help reduce the risk of contracting or spreading COVID and learning how to protect yourself during the pandemic.
COVID-19 has also put a strain on many healthcare professionals, with dialysis nurses and techs being no different. There is higher demand as nurse shortages continue, and many dialysis units face the difficult task of providing life-saving treatments to kidney patients who are ill with the virus. It’s important to care for yourself during these difficult times to stay happy, healthy, and in a good mental state. Check out our mental health resources above for some tips to help preserve your mental health during the pandemic.
