Patients with symptoms of respiratory infection should put on a facemask before entering the screening area and keep it on until they leave the dialysis unit. Our dialysis unit will make sure an adequate stock of masks is available in the screening area to provide to the patients and accompanying persons if necessary.
Patients should wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, using a proper method of hand washing.
Patients should follow cough etiquettes, like coughing or sneezing using the inside of the elbow or using tissue paper.
Suspected or positive COVID-19 patients should properly wear a disposable three-layer surgical mask throughout dialysis duration.
