When I started dialysis, I didn’t expect I’d have to worry about the clinic that’s supposed to keep me healthy.
I’ve seen bugs crawling in between the plastic that covers the light fixtures in the ceiling. I’ve had to call the health department many times to report roaches, blood stains, and lack of adequate cleaning.
Dialysis equipment at my clinic malfunctions a lot. I’ve seen workers switch out a machine in the middle of another patient’s treatment because it is malfunctioning. I’ve talked to the clinic administrators to resolve these dangerous situations, but management changes so often that my concerns are always left unaddressed.
