Hello and hope you are doing well.

The chance of getting HIV infection  and hepatitis B/C through dialysis treatment is small because of the strict infection control measures used in dialysis units today. A screening is done prior to dialysis, for HIV, hepatitis B/C. If positive then, then isolation of these patients for dialysis is done.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
