The infection risk assessment visit in haemodialysis is a tool which contributes to the safety of care” Laprugne-Garcia and Gardes (2017).

Abstract:

Haemodialysis is a speciality with a high risk of infection, due in part to the frailty of the patients (immunosuppressed, high prevalence of carriers of multi-drug resistant bacteria), as well as to the invasive procedures carried out (inserting central venous catheters, using these catheters and arteriovenous fistulas). The infection risk assessment visit in haemodialysis is a tool which contributes to the safety of care.
