Saving Patients’ Lifelines

Along with February’s Network 16 News, we’ve distributed copies of an ESRD NCC Fistula First tool called It only takes a minute to save your lifeline.  It’s intended for facilities to add their contact information and give to patients, as instructions for them to use to monitor their vascular access.  Find an online copy of the tool at https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/nwrn.org/files/N/TakesAMinute.pdf .  We’ve linked to the tool from the NWRN website at https://www.nwrn.org/providers-and-professional-staff/vastf/stfprotect.html .  You can find more vascular-access-protection resources at
