    Mistakes HD Nurses Make?. I work in a facility that does HD and I have been there for a little over a year now. I am pretty happy in this position right now, but I have made tons of mistakes too. I was to ask some of the more seasoned dialysis nurses what some of the mistakes they have made have been?  I think this can help all new nurses in HD

    Good topic,

    I know that I’ve actually made the mistake of not clamping the saline once. Scary huh?  I know you do learn by your mistakes LOL

    I know I’ve made the mistake of running Vanc way too fast. I learned the hard way and corrected it pretty quickly.

    I think it’s important to realize that many patients come in and don’t realize that they have to do this for the rest of their lives. I think being empathetic to these patients is very important.
