Technology and medical equipment devices have become integrated in the delivery of health care. These technologies and devices can introduce new risks, either through user error or malfunction. When these incidents occur, it is important they are reported so that learning and improvements are possible. A just culture encourages reporting of incidents by not blaming individuals, but rather by seeking to understand incidents in relation to how they occurred because of the systems in place. These concepts are explored through a case study in a dialysis unit where a malfunction of a medical equipment device (central venous catheter) was identified...

Use of ultrasound for hemodialysis vascular access assessment and real-time cannulation requires specialized training. In order to obtain basic hand-eye coordination, theoretical sessions on ultrasound use, as well as practical sessions using phantom models are recommended prior to its use in the clinical setting with patients. New users of this technology need to consider that all competencies can be achieved with daily use of ultrasound at the bedside. It takes approximately 500 guided cannulations to achieve the highest level of competency described above...

Patient safety is the foundation of high-quality health care, as recognized both nationally and worldwide. Patient blood specimen identification is critical in ensuring the delivery of safe and appropriate care. The practice of nephrology nursing involves frequent patient blood specimen withdrawals to treat and monitor kidney disease. A critical review of the literature reveals that incorrect patient identification is one of the major causes of blood specimen labelling errors. Misidentified samples create a serious risk to patient safety leading to multiple specimen withdrawals, delay in diagnosis, misdiagnosis, incorrect treatment, transfusion reactions, increased length of stay and other negative patient outcomes...

Diabetes is the leading cause of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The clinical practice guidelines of the Canadian Diabetes Association were updated in 2013. We sought to identify the level of adherence to the CDA guidelines of an interprofessional team in a pre-dialysis clinic that includes a nurse practitioner, and examine how team members integrated the guidelines and optimized each provider’s role. A mixed methods study was undertaken. Chart audits (n= 146) identified 10 patients who met the inclusion criteria...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Sannifer Hoi, Marisa Battistella
There now exists current evidence that the initiation of statin therapy in patients on hemodialysis does not provide the same cardiovascular benefit as in non-hemodialysis patients. The KDIGO guidelines suggest not to initiate statin therapy in hemodialysis-dependent CKD patients, but to continue therapy in patients who are already on a statin at the time of hemodialysis initiation. A closer monitoring of myopathy is warranted for hemodialysis patients on a statin therapy.

The management of anemia is important for health outcomes for people with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Global evidenced-based guidelines must be placed in the Canadian context to be relevant to guide practice. This paper summarizes the response of the Canadian Society of Nephrology to global anemia management guidelines in CKD and the implications for practice.

OBJECTIVES: To assess hemodialysis (HD) patients' physical health, social supports, psychosocial well-being and the interrelationship among patients' experiences, demographics, illness characteristics, and biochemical indicators of health. To determine responsiveness of the Patient's Perception of Hemodialysis Scale (PPHS) to change in health status and critical events. METHODS: Using a longitudinal design HD patients (n = 85) were assessed at two time periods. Data analysis included measures of central tendency and tests of difference to assess interrelationships and responsiveness of the PPHS...
