It takes a special person to work with dialysis patients, encourage them to take care of themselves, teach them how to administer their own treatments at home, and help them feel healthier in their day–to–day lives.
Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) nursing at DaVita Kidney Care gives you the opportunity to empower patients to take their health into their own hands and rediscover independence, while you continue to monitor their overall wellness. You take responsibility for the whole patient, not just what PD is doing for him or her. Each patient is unique, so you have to stay on your toes. You constantly apply your core nursing skills - diagnosing and implementing new care plans on a day–to–day basis.
