Ask your dialysis facility about the emergency plan in case of a snowstorm, fire, power outage or other natural disasters.
- Make sure you have the names, locations and phone numbers of other dialysis units and hospitals in your area.
- If you dialyze at home, make sure you have at least two weeks’ worth of unexpired supplies on hand.
- If you have to miss a dialysis treatment, begin your emergency meal plan.
