Some dialysis administrators and nurses do not encourage their patients to socialize with other patients while visiting the clinic to  receive dialysis treatments.  Some even go as far as to purposely keep  patients isolated from each other.

.Most dialysis patients have to visit these clinics 3 days a week for about 3 to 4 hours per visit.  There are some dialysis patients that admit to  experiencing feelings of  loneliness and .boredom  during these visits..

Patients who do have positive interactions with other patients say they seem to  have improved social, emotional and physical health.
