Our Story: Fidelity Home Dialysis is the first Staff Assisted Dialysis Company in the State of Arkansas. Fidelity Home Dialysis was the vision of the company’s CEO to bring to Central Arkansas the modality of Staff Assisted Home Hemodialysis. After seeing the tremendous amount of difference that Staff Assisted Home Hemodialysis was making in other states the decision was made to bring this modality to Arkansas. Therefore, after interviewing Nephrologist, Renal Nurses, Hospital Case Mangers, the State Health Department, and Dialysis Patients, the theory was confirmed, that there was a need. The facility is a Boutique Dialysis Clinic which is a fully functioning Federal and State Approved ESRD Facility with four in-center stations. Every feature of our facility is geared toward the comfort of our dialysis patients. The vision is to create a spa-Facility catering to the needs of dialysis patients with one-on-one detailed care. (One nursing staff/patient). In-center and in the comforts of their home, with a License Nurse administering every treatment three times a week. Staff Assisted Dialysis also give our patients flexibility to schedule their treatments around their personal schedules.
Staff Assisted vs In Center
- The same nurse performs each treatment. And more importantly we only use Licensed Nurses to care for you.
- You use the same machine every treatment. This machine is kept at your home, and for your personal use only.
- Your treatment time is fitted around your schedule; this means no waiting for a chair like in-center.
- Because you are dialyzing in the comfort of your home, and not around other patients, there is less chance of infection and getting sick from other patients.
