The University of Virginia Health System is again being recognized for its dialysis clinics.
For the third straight year, UVa. Health System dialysis clinics have garnered a top patient safety honors.
The recognition comes from the Mid-Atlantic Renal Coalition, a nonprofit working to improve care for patients with end-stage kidney disease in Virginia and other states.
Each of the eight UVA dialysis clinics is recognized as 5-Diamond Patient Safety Facilities from the organization.
To earn 5-Diamond status, staff at each dialysis clinic completed a series of interactive training modules on patient safety topics, including communication, flu vaccination, and emergency preparedness.
Of the 139 dialysis facilities in Virginia, only 21 received 5-Diamond status.
