Ruth Ann, most dialysis patients receive hemodialysis (usually 3-4 x a week) at stand-alone dialysis clinics or at hospital dialysis departments. There is something called peritoneal dialysis that can be done at home. Since your father definitely doesn't seem well enough to do this treatment hiimself, this would fall to you, or another close relative. He would have a machine at home, and you would be taught how to do the treatment. PD is not as successful as hemodialysis, but you might want to look into it. Most dialysis patients opt to get treatment at a dialysis center. Your dad could go to a skilled nursing facility, if he is being pushed out of the ICU. When he has a lucid moment, ask him if he wants to fight for treatment of his kidney/liver failure.
