The Technology of Touch
Northumberland Hills Hospital offers a 12-station satellite service of the regional dialysis program located at Peterborough Regional Health Centre (PRHC). Care is provided to patients from throughout Northumberland County who are living with chronic kidney failure and require Level I or Level II hemodialysis treatments to sustain their lives.
An outreach Pre-Dialysis and Nephrology Clinic complements NHH’s Dialysis service, for individuals with reduced kidney function. This interdisciplinary service (medicine, pharmacy, dietitian and social work) focuses on assessment, management, treatment and support with the goal of delaying the progression of kidney function loss and—by extension—the need for dialysis.
Equipped with the latest in dialysis patient technology and staffed by highly experienced registered nurses specialized in nephrology nursing, patients are supported medically by PRHC nephrologists. The team is completed by specially trained dialysis attendants as well as dietitians, social workers, pharmacy personnel and rehabilitation therapy staff.
