Having difficulty discharging a patient receiving hemodialysis because no dialysis clinic will accept them? Freedom at home dialysis can help!

Freedom at Home Dialysis had helped various hospitals and LTACH mitigate their Length Of Stay for patients on hemodialysis with open tracheostomy, ventilator, open wound or those patients that simply could not go to the in-center dialysis clinics or has been refused by the clinics for any reason. FAHD also helped patients with acceptable insurance that are on compassionate dialysis care at the hospital. Make Freedom at Home Dialysis be a part of your discharge plan for this kind of patients.
