Flexible Scheduling to fit your lifestyle
We treat 12 patients every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday over three shifts starting at 5:00 a.m. Clients on the late shift typically complete dialysis no later than 7:30pm. Looking toward the future, Coryell Dialysis has the capacity to expand to additional shifts to fully accommodate our patients’ needs.
Types of Treatment: 2
Frequency: 3 Days Per Week
Average Length: 4 Hours
Dialysis Stations: 12
In-Center Clients Per Week: 36
At-Home Clients Per Week: 20
Coryell Dialysis has 12 dialysis stations and is prepared to perform dialysis treatment for up to 36 in-center hemodialysis clients a week.
Patients are greeted upon arrival. Once their chair is ready, they’re escorted to the treatment floor to have vital signs, weight and nursing assessment completed.
Patients are able to bring blankets and pillows to assist in making their time with us as comfortable as possible. Each client station is equipped with an individual television and headphones.
The average treatment lasts 4 hours and happens 3 days per week. In-center clients will see a nurse practitioner and/or nephrologist weekly while in the clinic.
At-Home: Peritoneal Dialysis
We can perform dialysis treatment for up to 20 home peritoneal dialysis patients per week.
This option is ideal for patients who prefer to complete necessary dialysis treatments in the comfort of their own homes. Once patients are trained, they will typically only need to take two trips to the clinic each month.
Peritoneal dialysis treatments are completed daily and often during the hours that our clients are sleeping comfortably in bed at home. The patient comes in to the clinic monthly to take care of appropriate laboratory checks and once monthly for a visit with the nephrologist.
Everyone on staff at Coryell Dialysis is committed to making you feel as comfortable and well-cared for as possible. Our positions include:
- Board Certified Physician Nurse Practitioner
- Dialysis Nurses
- Certified Patient Care Technicians
- Home Dialysis Nurses
- Social Worker
- Administrative Assistant
About Kidney Failure
Kidney failure, also known as end-stage renal disease (ESRD), is a fatal condition unless a kidney transplant is available or a patient undergoes dialysis.
Dialysis is the process of removing excess water, solutes, and toxins from the blood in people whose kidneys can no longer perform these functions naturally. This involves being connected to a machine that removes blood from the patient’s body, filters it through a dialyzer (an artificial kidney) and then returns the cleaned blood to the body.
An estimated 20 million U.S. adults have chronic kidney disease (CKD), which can progress to ESRD. Most are unaware of their condition, as the disease is often symptomless until the kidneys fail. Groups at the highest risk for ESRD include those with diabetes or hypertension as well as older adults, African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans.
