There’s no place like home for dialysis

THERE really is no place like home for 75 of Gold Coast Health’s renal dialysis patients who have been trained to perform their dialysis at home.

Over the past 18 months, the Home Therapies Unit at Robina Hospital have trained 39 patients to perform their dialysis at home which is not only saving up to $30,000 per patient, but is improving patient’s quality of life.

The home therapy service includes both Peritoneal Dialysis (dialysis inside the body) and Home Haemodialysis (dialysis using a machine) and allows for patients to continue with their normal day-to-day activities.
