CMS requires ESRD Networks to track the status of facility operations and patient access to treatment during emergency events at all facilities, including disruptions due to wildfire, excessive heat, water pollution, or any other natural or man-made event that interrupts your normal schedules. 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.
