It is so sad to think that patients are treated like this.
I have a sneaking suspicion that many dialysis patients are treated in a substandard manner due to who they are
Let's be completely honest. The majority of dialysis patients come from the most marginalized groups in American society. The poor, the working class, elderly people, African-Americans, and Latinos are the ones most likely to end up on dialysis for a number of reasons. To be even more blunt, these groups are not the most valued or prized, so many of their plights do not receive much attention from the media.
There. . . I said it.
