Assess of Hepatitis Virus Transmission with Nurses Practice among Adult Hemodialysis Patients

Hemodialysis patients are often immunocompromised, meaning that their immune systems are not as strong as those of healthy individuals. As such, any breach in infection control policies, such as failure to properly disinfect dialysis equipment or poor hand hygiene, can increase the risk of contracting viral hepatitis. Hepatitis virus (HBV and HCV) are the most common viruses in the hemodialysis population. Hemodialysis patients have an increased risk of developing hepatitis virus (HBV) and (HCV) than the general population. Although hemodialysis remains the choice of renal replacement therapy for patients with end-stage renal disease in low-income countries. Globally, the prevalence of hepatitis B and C viruses in hemodialysis patients varies from country to country. Contemporary care in hemodialysis departments is generally not based on the principles of person-centered care (PCC) but is generally structured to serve providers, mainly for specific diseases, with an emphasis on dialysis care and optimization of metabolic goals and dialysis.
