2013-01-22 15:49

Infection is a significant death cause for people with ESRD on maintenance dialysis. Therefore, it is important to prevent infection for the patients.

One of the keys to infection prevention is patient education. They should know that they are at increased risk and that they need to do all they can as well as help monitor what others do during dialysis process.

Washing hands thoroughly is an easy, but important thing to reduce infection. However, many patients still do not wash hands thoroughly. Before they sitting down in the dialysis chair, the patients should wash their hands with antibacterial soap. Lather the soap on your hands and wrist and wash vigorously for at least 15 seconds.

Environmental cleaning and disinfection

If the patients are on home Dialysis, it is important to keep the area where you perform dialysis as clean as possible. Keep the area free of microorganisms such as, bacteria, fungus, viruses and other germs.

Take care of access and catheter

Taking proper care of access or catheter can reduce the likelihood of getting an infection. It is important for people on dialysis clean their access site thoroughly with antibacterial soap before the treatment. Use shower instead of tub bath. Also the patients should avoid carrying or lifting items to avoid causing discomfort or pain in the arm. If they have the signs of infections such as redness, pain, swelling around the access, they should report them to their doctors immediately.

Supplies cleaning and disinfection

If the patients are on home dialysis, they often use many prepackaged, sterile medical supplies. They should inspect every package before opening it and make sure the supplies remain sterile. If packings are worn and expiration date has passed, they should discard the supplies.
