Missing dialysis treatments can be a matter of life and death for patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD).  However, the portability of the System One allows home patients to take their machines and supplies with them in case of evacuation. And, if confined to their homes, NxStage patients can typically continue with their daily treatment regimen. "Are You Ready?" helps patients and their care partners prepare in advance for these types of situations.  

The centerpiece of "Are You Ready" is a comprehensive workbook that includes instructions for the following:

  • Developing and testing an evacuation plan
  • Ordering emergency reserves of home dialysis equipment and supplies
  • Consolidating emergency contact information and critical medical/identification documents
  • Organizing visible access to prescription information, as well as information on allergies or specific dietary guidelines or restrictions.
  • Alerting local utility companies i
