    Sled here is set up by the dialysis nurse, water checks, bath changes etc. Maintance and hourly checks are done by the ICU nurse. If the system begins to clot or the pt is to be taken off the ICU nurse returns the blood. The dialysis nurse is not in house over night. A call person is available to help with troubleshooting and answer questions. Usually if the system clots in the middle of the night. (don't they all?) The pt is left off until morning.
