Abstract

SUMMARY

Although traditionally considered the domain of the renal technologist, many units do not have technicians or may only have part-time access to one. In these cases, it often falls to nursing staff to ensure that patients are dialysed safely. However, water quality is an area in which some nurses do not feel confident. This paper is aimed at providing information about the importance of appropriate water treatment, water testing and monitoring and the implications to the patient if the water is not checked appropriately in accordance with the guidelines.
