SOUTH CAROLINA: Dialysis Clinic Oversite Failure

Posted on May 12, 2011


SOUTH CAROLINA: This explosive report on the state of South Carolina’s Kidney Dialysis Clinics is a must-read and follows a string of reports coming in from all over the country on the sorry state of the treatment of kidney disease – particularly kidney dialysis patients who are given no other option besides dialysis by caregivers. Renee Dudley does an excellent job for The Post and Courier. Shocking fact: most dialysis patients who die within the first two years don’t die from kidney failure – they die from infections resulting from unsanitary dialysis treatment. Question: Where’s the state oversite here?
