To all my dialysis peers...I work in a rai/fresinius clinic in sc. I have worked in the clinic for 8 months. Each patient as you know has a special bath...2k2.0 or 2k2.5...which we pull from the machine. However we have over 90 patients with 30 or so being on special baths like 3k2 and 3k2,5 and 2k3. Recently my supervisor said we can no longer mix baths Bc there might be more potassium in one or calcium in the other...I'm taking about putting 2 half jugs of 3k2.0 into one for another patient. So now each day each rn is making up to 10 new baths which is quite time consuming and labor intensive. My thought is all the jugs when filled are filled to the same level with the same mix so when you combine them the concentration should be the same. However our biomes guy who knows everything brought it to my supervisors attention it's not. I'm asking how to other clinics deal with this? Does anyone know what dhec says? Or kidney councils? And information for or against this practice? I work sometimes 14 hiur days and the last thing I want to do is make 10 new baths after a long shift....thanks for any help!!!
