Patient Rights and Responsibilities

As a transplant or dialysis patient, you live in a complex and costly health care system. Often you may face problems in coping with the requirements of your medical treatment. Trying to balance the other demands of your life with treatment can be highly challenging.

We at Midwest Kidney Network believe that you and every renal patient should be guaranteed competent, high-quality care. And you should receive treatment that is given with respect and dignity. It is our belief that the informed renal patient is better equipped to cope with the stresses and decisions that may arise during his/her chosen therapy.
