I attend haemodialysis here three days a week - Tues, Thursday and Saturday morning. I'm on the first shift at 7.30am. I find all the care team passionate, capable and caring. They are understanding and non judgmental. The unit is clean and accommodating. Biscuits (sweet and dry) are provided along with a small cup of tea or coffee. A pack of sandwiches is also provided, as is fruit, eg apple or orange. A small juice (apple or orange) is also available. All dialysis units are cold, you will need a blanket here. Patients can bring their own or make use of the ones the unit has. The unit has Fresenius machines 5008 machines. See http://fmc-au.com/therapy-systems-and-services/chronic-hemodialysis/machines/5008 There are tv's to watch but you will need a suitable headset to plug into if you want sound. There are a couple of isolation rooms and they have tv units that patients do not need to use headphones for. The unit is easy to find being in Gertrude St. It can be difficult to get parking in the afternoon. There are a couple of disabled parking spots outside the front door. During the weekdays cars can not park on the same side of the road as the unit, it is a clearway until after 9am. The unit cares for patients on both haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. They also provide training in home haemodialysis. As at Feb 2018, there is quite a list for home HD training.
