Bedside Dialysis and Renal Care
Capri at the Pointe Rehab, with approval through the patient’s insurance, provides convenient and professional services to our patients requiring medically prescribed Hemodialysis. Upon admission, dialysis patients are assigned a Nephrologist and a team who carefully oversee all of their hemodialysis needs. This team will consist of the Nephrologist, Registered Nurses who are specially trained in the care and delivery of hemodialysis, skilled nursing staff and Nutritional Services to include a registered dietician. Case Management staff watches the daily care of the patient and provide updates to the insurance company, Nephrologists and Outpatient Dialysis Centers.
When patients have progressed and are medically able to transition to the community Outpatient Dialysis Centers, the dialysis team will coordinate all services needed to ensure a smooth transition into their community. With a focus on continuity of care between the community dialysis centers and Capri at the Point Rehab’s bedside dialysis services, patients establish a normal and functional routine within their community. With good coordination and professional oversight, patients can return to the community by reaching or exceeding their rehab goals.
Our Rehab services include recovery programs for knee replacement, hip fractures, head injury, arthritis, wound care, stroke, and cardiac event (such as heart attack or bypass surgery) in addition to various surgical procedures and many debilitating diseases such as diabetes.
