End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Facilities: Cleaning the Patient Station
• Cleaning the ESRD station between patients: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended that a
dialysis station, in order to prevent cross contamination, be completely vacated by the previous patient before the ESRD staff
may begin cleaning and disinfection of the station and set up for the next patient.
• Precaution: CMS reiterates that patients should not be moved from the dialysis station until they are clinically stable.
