In an Emergency, the Network works with dialysis facilities to track and report patient access to treat and publish the status of facility operations (open/closed/altered schedule). The Network works with federal, state, and local government agencies as needed to assist with patient safety and ensure dialysis facilities are prioritized to be open.

View our Emergency Updates page to see the operational status of facilities during a potential emergency.

Emergency Preparedness for Patients

Emergencies caused by severe weather or disasters can happen with or without warning. If you need dialysis, having power and water, transportation, or supplies will be crucial. Some emergency situations may make it impossible for you to get to your dialysis facility or give yourself dialysis. It is important to be prepared so you can feel better and stay healthy.
