As the world waits for this virus to be dealt with, it is vulnerable who are most at risk, especially the elderly, children and patients. Dialysis patients around the world have been rather anxious and nervous, ever since the pandemic led to a complete lockdown
The patients and their families have had good reason to be worried, as they need to step out at least twice a week for the dialysis procedure, which must continue at any cost.
Despite this, patients at Apollo Dialysis Clinics across Bangalore city have been at ease, as this renowned medical institution has been practising maximum measures to ensure that sanitisation and hygiene are maintained.
With an impeccable track record in attending to the medicare needs of people for over 36 years, the centre is taking extra steps to protect the patients during this lockdown. Along with the partner clinics, Dharma Kidney Care and Koshys Hospital, Apollo Dialysis is making sure that the patients are screened before stepping in and are given a hassle-free and safe treatment.
The standards of sanitisation, hygiene and infection control maintained across Apollo Dialysis Clinics are consistently at par with global standards and as per the guidelines issued by Government of India. The whole process provides a safe and satisfying environment for the patients to undergo the procedure of dialysis before they head back home.
Mr. Srinivas, who has been undergoing dialysis at Apollo Dialysis Clinics for over 3 months now shared his experience and said – “Before entering the clinic they conduct a proper screening. The clinic is clean and complete hygiene is maintained. The doctors and technicians are very helpful, and they take care of the patients very well.”
Dr. Prashant C Dheerendra, Consultant Nephrologist, spoke to us about the current situation. “Chronic kidney failure, unfortunately, is an incurable disease. But with proper dialysis, under the care of a nephrologist, patients can lead a very productive and happy life. I have seen people not just survive, but thrive on dialysis for more than 20 years.”
Very soon, Apollo Dialysis will also be launching their breakthrough service – Home Hemodialysis in Bangalore, thanks to which, patients will be able to receive a completely dedicated dialysis unit at their own home, and undergo the same, in the safety of their home. This exclusive service, which has already been approved and in use worldwide, will make it more convenient, hassle-free and comfortable for patients and their families, especially during the pandemic.
While the uncertainty continues, all patients are advised to ascertain what is being done at their hospitals and clinics, for their security. They must also follow the measures suggested by their doctors, before and after their visits, to keep themselves safeguarded.
