Inpatient Dialysis Services
Our Nephrologists provide both acute and chronic dialysis in all area hospitals throughout Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando, and Manatee Counties.
If a patient who has been on chronic dialysis as an outpatient is admitted to an area hospital, our physicians will make sure that dialysis is continued on an inpatient basis (while in the hospital). We will reach out to their home dialysis unit on admission, carry over necessary orders, and communicate any changes to the home unit treatments upon discharge.
We have the ability to oversee both hemodialysis as well as peritoneal dialysis in the hospital setting. If you are on PD and use a cycler, depending on the facility, you may be asked to bring in your own equipment.
Other patients may acutely require dialysis while hospitalized for another condition. Accordingly, our physicians will tailor a dialysis regimen specific to the patient's needs. We are able to provide both standard hemodialysis as well as Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) to patients who are more critically ill.
Wherever you live in Tampa Bay, you can rest assured that Renal Hypertension Center has physicians ready to help you today.
