    Dialysis Talk with Dearly Departed Dialysis Patients Families on Care Problems

    in Health

    A frank discussion with family members of departed Dialysis Patients about the level of care provided to their loved one. Additionally the feeling of a lack of basic information on the care of the family member and how they felt out of the loop during the Dialysis process and care for their loved one will be covered.


    The current problem with overworked and under trained technician’s which has led to patient injury and in some cases patient deaths needs to be addressed and changes legislated.

    Bill inherited polycystic kidney disease from his father, and has a 50-percent chance of passing this genetic fate to one of his daughters. His situation inspired him to become a spokesperson for PKD awareness, going so far as to dress up as “Kenny the Kidney” at the Walk for PKD each spring. 


    Jimmie Briggs:
    A year after he was declared ‘GQ Man of the Year’ for his work against gender violence, Jimmie suffered a heart attack and renal failure. Only in his early 40s, this sad twist of fate has forced him to live with constant uncertainty.

    Dialysis Talk "Carol Edwards - Dialysis Patient/Social Worker"

    in Health

    Carol Edwards began dialysis in September 2000.  Her renal failure resulted from hypertension.  Unfortunately, she has also had several serious bouts with other illnesses which included heart valve replacement.  During this time she recalls when she  promised God that if he allowed her to get back on her feet again she would continue  to give back.


    After gaining her strength Carol reentered the workforce as a Social Worker in 2008.  She has also been a single mother for years and has successfully raised two "men".


    Sadly,within the 14 years of receiving her treatments in the dialysis clinics she observed that dialysis patients are not treated with the dignity and respect afforded to other chronic or end stage patients.  She states that  dialysis patients generate billions in revenue for the owners of the clinics, the doctors, the nurses, the administrators, the technicians, etc. however our rights as human beings are trampled and ignored as if we are an irrelevant part of society.  It is important that we are noticed and heard.
       
     Her  philosophy is, "Dialysis is what I do to survive..it does not define me".
