Dialysis Training Unit
Mount Baker Kidney Center nursing staff works with at-home patients to educate and prepare them to operate dialysis equipment and perform dialysis independently in their own homes. Dialysis Training Unit nurses schedule work with patients for two to four weeks until patients are ready to perform their own treatments.
Mount Baker Kidney Center has two part-time registered dietitians in the Center five days a week. Our dietitians provide nutritional counseling to address your concerns and help you adjust to the necessary diet modifications required for your optimum health.
There are two part-time social workers and a social work assistant in the Center five days a week to help patients with their various needs and/or concerns. Our social workers are here to educate patients and help them better understand kidney disease. We assess and monitor the quality of life of our patients and assist in setting appropriate goals. Our social work department can also support patients with insurance needs and coordinate travel while on dialysis. We offer support to each patient and their loved ones throughout the adjustment to life on dialysis.
