Guest: Arlene Mullen with Dialysis Advocates (dialysisadvocates.com)
This is another of those federally funded programs like Hospice, that causes the premature deaths of patients as a matter of routine and for profit.
In another case of self-regulated, no oversight, systems created as a supposed public benefit, the dialysis industry profits from the patients it was created to serve. Nephrology groups own the contracts and provide no statistics on the effectiveness of the services they deliver. In a system that routinely blames the patient as an excuse to terminate dialysis services, patients are ejected from the program and may not re-enter it except as an emergency room patient.
