It’s still relatively balmy in Southern California, but winter is getting serious in Network 16. CMS requires ESRD Networks to track the status of facility operations and patient access to treatment during emergency events at all facilities. If the operations of your facility, or ability for patients to have access to dialysis, are impacted by emergency events, please let your Network know right away.
