Dialysis and apheresis require the knowledge and decision-making skills of professional Registered Nurses. At MedStar Georgetown, we have an expert RN team, many of whom are nationally certified in nephrology nursing, providing the high-tech assessment and care necessary for critically ill patients. Our nurses work with the most advanced equipment, including the Cobe Spectra Apheresis System and Fresenius Hemodialysis Machine. In this high-tech environment, we also provide the patient/family the education and support necessary for them to cope with serious illness. MedStar Georgetown nurses offer the perfect combination of nursing science and the art of caring to their patients and families.
