CMS: Cleaning Stations

CMS has published new Survey & Certification guidelines on:

  • Cleaning the ESRD station between patients: CDC recommends 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.
