SLEDD is 8–10 slow dialysis treatments for patients who cannot tolerate conventional hemodialysis. Sinai-Grace is one of the busiest IP dialysis units in the country. Our nurse to patient ratio is 1:1 at the bedside and 1:2 for patients dialyzed in the unit. We have a machine technician and two renal care assistants to assist the nursing staff.
