PSN-PSMID-PHICS Interim Guidelines in the Prevention and Control of COVID19 Infection in Hemodialysis Facilities
Patients undergoing regular hemodialysis are considered vulnerable and thus require specific guidelines in the context of COVID-19. The goal is to minimize the risk of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in facilities that provide routine hemodialysis services to this specific group of immunocompromised individuals. This document will guide nephrologists, physicians and other healthcare professionals practicing in hemodialysis units as they attend to patients seeking hemodialysis services in their facilities. Recommendations in this rapid guidance are based on best available evidence and will be updated as new evidence becomes available.
