Dialysis center in Medford recognized for patient safety

Aspirus Kidney Care-Medford

MEDFORD, Wis. For the eighth year in a row, the Renal Network of the Upper Midwest recognized Aspirus Medford Hospital’s Kidney Care Center as a 5-Diamond Patient Safety Facility. This 5-Diamond status is granted to dialysis centers that put patients first by making sure staff and patients know and use the principles of patient safety at all times.

To maintain 5-Diamond distinction, the Kidney Care Center requires staff and patients to complete a series of lessons meant to improve awareness of patient safety issues and to teach and/or reinforce the safety techniques that protect patients.
