December 19, 2013  | Press Releases
DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 19, 2013-- DaVita®, a division of DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc. and a leading provider of kidney care services, today announced important emergency preparedness information for dialysis patients during the winter season. DaVita is reminding patients and their families to prepare for weather-related emergencies by creating medication and emergency diet kits.

“Dialysis is quite simply a life-sustaining treatment, and a weather-related emergency can negatively impact a patient’s ability to receive that treatment,” said Shaun Collard, vice president of clinical operations at DaVita and member of the DaVita Village Emergency Response Team, DaVERT. “But there are several steps patients can take to make sure that in an emergency situation they can receive the treatment they need, or at the very least, lessen the impact of missing a dialysis session.”
