RPA Guidance on Providing Dialysis to Acute Kidney Injury Patients


While patients with certain diagnoses may, after long intervals of renal replacement therapy, recover function, other patients with acute kidney injury may be misclassified as ESRD as a result of regulatory considerations.  Given that the fraction of patients previously designated as having ESRD with "recovered function" is rising steadily, this issue has appropriately come under increasing scrutiny by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Forum of ESRD Networks.  Therefore, RPA offers the following guidance to nephrologists and other physicians completing the 2728 ESRD certification form in this document.  Published 8/23/2011
