What is the consequence of the kidney shortage?

It is a catastrophe.  We conservatively estimate that each year 43,000 patients suffer on dialysis and die prematurely because of the shortage.  That’s equivalent to 85 fully loaded 747s crashing each year.  That’s 118 patients dying each day.  Since 1988 (when data collection began) almost 1 million patients have suffered and died prematurely because of the shortage.

All patient cases have been documented and verified for accuracy.

Arlene Mullin — advocate, 20 years experience guiding patients and their families through all aspects of End Stage Renal Disease treatments.  Mullin has served patients in a majority of states, engaging both Medicare and state health authorities towards resolution of quality care issues at clinics.  Comprehensive knowledge of care issues on clinic level.  She was instrumental in getting the hearings on aging before the U.S. Senate in 2000 where she testified on patient care issue within the dialysis industry.

Dialysis Advocates is grateful for the opportunity to get this important message out for all Dialysis Patients.

We will be having a guest on the first part of every show. Then we will open the Microphones for the Town Hall. Patients and others will be able to discuss concerns and solutions. It will be a patient group, including families.

We also realize that many patients need to be supported and being heard is important for all patients in a safe venue.
