Dialysis nurse transfixed blood thru dialysis port

  1. I had a dialysis nurse transfused me through my venous access. I asked her what she was doing and she said she did this all the time and it was a faster easier way to transfuse.

    It has bothered me ever since, and it was a couple weeks ago. Is this a normal practice?

    As with your other post, this question is best directed to your nephrologist.

    Best wishes.
