Water treatment systems used in dialysis are critical to the overall care received by dialysis patients; they also provide one of the greatest hazards to the patients if they are not functioning properly.  To maintain patient safety, the water system must be maintained and monitored by dialysis staff according to AAMI and CMS standards and procedures.   This activity will help dialysis technicians and nurses learn how to responsibly operate and monitor water treatment and dialysate preparation systems.
