Technician - Mount Sinai Hospital Hemodialysis Unit

Mount Sinai Hospital hemodialysis unit is one of the few remaining hospital-based dialysis programs in the country. The hemodialysis unit has always been maintained by the hospital since the unit first opened in the 1960s.

The dialysis program currently includes dialysis services at Mount Sinai Hospital, Schwab rehabilitation hospital, and Holy Cross hospital. At Sinai, the services provided are outpatient and inpatient hemodialysis; at Schwab, inpatient hemodialysis; and at Holy Cross, inpatient hemodialysis.

The outpatient dialysis unit has 11 stations, serving four shifts of patients Monday through Saturday. There are two staff shifts. The inpatient unit has 4 stations and also provides bedside dialysis. Schwab has a 2-station unit and also provides bedside dialysis. Holy Cross has a 6-station unit and provides bedside dialysis as well.  All acute services also are operational Monday through Saturday. The unit is closed on Sunday. Acute staff has on call responsibilities. Also, Mount Sinai hospital and Schwab are currently developing a stronger peritoneal dialysis program.

The staffing mix is approximately 60% RN and 40% certified hemodialysis technicians. The chronic staff work five, 8 hour shifts and the acute staff work four, 10 hour shifts.

Mount Sinai hospital has four nephrologists, all part of the Sinai health system. They are on site, responsive, and supportive of the dialysis staff.

We enjoy our independence functioning within a hospital system, as opposed to an outside management company. Our dialysis patients can more easily coordinate their other appointments and services along with their dialysis treatments here at Sinai. The unit also has practically no staff turnover. There are numerous learning opportunities from the different dialysis modalities as well as learning about all the equipment that is involved in preparing a safe dialysis treatment.
