Today a major series of articles on the provision of dialysis went online. Pro Publica has the most complete version of the initial article, In Dialysis, Life-Saving Care at Great Risk and Cost. Check out FixDialysis.com for all the links and to join what is sure to be a lively discussion.
As for me, I just got off dialysis (I dialyzed while I slept for 7 hours) and need to be at work by 8AM. This is my 9th straight shift - I had 54.5 hours last week and it's looking like I'll have over 40 hours this week (we go Monday to Sunday).
When I'm not blogging (which is most of the time recently. For past articles I'd suggest checking out the Dialysis (ESRD) Payment Bundle, tag and the Optimal Dialysis tag), I work for a company that sets up tradeshows; last month I was offered the lead graphics production spot, I accepted. It's a union job, this is my 16th year in the carpenters union as a tradeshow specialist. I've been on dialysis for 20 years.
