Every month, the dialysis team gets together for something called a multidisciplinary conference to discuss the patients in the dialysis unit. I suggest that you talk with the social worker who is responsible for your father and ask to be in attendance at the multidisciplinary conference. At the conference, you should be able to visit with the nephrologist, the nurses, the dietitian and the social worker who are caring for your father. It is best to have this discussion with the entire team present and have your concerns addressed. Both you and your father should be able to attend.
