I usually post on Thursdays because it’s a “day off” from dialysis but today, I’m just really hazy and lazy. My mood reflects the weather today. It overcast and gloomy. So, I won’t post today (actually I am posting just not about dialysis! LOL) I will post this weekend about dialysis.
I was busy this week (perhaps a bit more than usual). I posted about the conclusion of my EEOC complaints against my former employer in “Dialysis and EEOC Mediation (Update)” I posted about my reasons for getting involved in political activism in “Dialysis and Activism” which features a video made of me. So, you get to see me stumbling about, verbally, in response to some questions about that. And, finally, I posted regarding how to tell your kids about your dialysis in “Dialysis and Telling the Kids” So, I feel I can take the day off! LOL
I’ll visit Houston, Texas next week so I may not post because I’m working on an article about the optimum dialysis center. Houston is where Dialyspa (love that name) has some dialysis centers designed cooperatively by a patient and a doctor. I wrote about them in “Dialysis and Dreaming”
In this photo, note the “living room” appearance. Does your dialysis center waiting room look like that? A fireplace!?
On their website they make this statement:
3:1 Patient to Technician, compared to 4:1
9:1 Patient to Nurse, compared to 12:1
This dialysis center offers heated, massaging recliners and individual touch screen monitors at every chair. Books, Netflix, music, internet and more will be at the fingertips of those spending time on dialysis.
It almost makes dialysis seem fun, eh?! I really look forward to visiting and reporting on it. But, the objective is to work up a comprehensive design criteria for the optimum dialysis center. How’s that for reaching for the stars?
