The single bedded Dialysis Unit at Al- Ain Hospital has been commissioned for the last 1 yr only and currently provide exclusive acute hemodialysis treatment for in-patients at this stage. The Service currently is supported by 2 Nephrology personal including a Consultant and a Specialist along with the Dialysis Nursing staff provided by the SEHA Dialysis Services from Tawam Hospital site.
Given the current manpower and Infrastructural facility Dialysis Unit operates only during the working week days from 8AM – 5/6 PM. All types of AKI and CKD emergency starters relating to National and Non- nationals are catered for in our Hospital. The dialysis unit work very closely with the ICU, CCU & LTVU to bring about rapid turnover of in- patients so that they don't block precious ICU beds in our hospital. As currently we have no out of Hrs/ weekend dialysis Nursing input at Al-Ain site emergency acute dialysis service is provided by the ICU team in the form of CRRT.
Despite our limitations in this 400 bedded Teaching Hospital ; Nephrology Team have been efficiently providing Day time Dialysis cover; in-patient cover, Multispecialty Consultations with in-pt follow ups along with VIP & OP Renal cover as well. Over the last 6 months giving priority for National population we have been steadily growing in our Dialysis capacity utilization averaging 50 dialysis sessions / Month.
Renal Team have worked very hard for the last 6 months to improve and provide best possible renal & dialysis services at Al – Ain site. Both the Multispecilaity teams and the Hospital management do appreciate our contribution and are very supportive of our future initiatives as well. In addition both National & Non –Nationals patients have given us positive feedback comments on our services. At this stage as we don't have a Chronic Dialysis programme at Al- Ain site and we do transfer chronic cases to the main SEHA Dialysis Centre located at Tawam site.
Last week we have embarked on the clinical initiative to use Renal Guard Therapy in our Hospital to reduce the incidence of AKI and Dialysis dependency for high risk patients who undergo Contrast studies in our very Dynamic Cardiology and Radiology Unit. Based on further support and demand we plan to offer Plasma Exchange treatment as well for suitable inpatients as well.
As our Hospital grows into the future, the Renal Services plans to keep pace with the increasing local demand. And in future with the appropriate infrastructural support we will be able provide both Hospital based Chronic Dialysis care and Home Care Heamo dialysis as well to promote better patient independence and Quality of Life. Based on appropriate Surgical and Vascular input there is scope to develop a PD programme and a robust Vascular Surveillance program me as well at Al- Ain site.
