Chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage renal disease are a global health problem worldwide. In developing countries, it is a particular challenge to deliver optimal hemodialysis (HD) due to prevailing socioeconomic conditions. This has multiple downstream effects, including frequent hospitalizations and increased morbidity. We conducted this retrospective study to identify the etiology of hospital admission in HD patients and to detect the duration and costs associated with their hospitalizations. A total of 42 maintenance HD patients were hospitalized during this time frame and their hospitalizations were studied for the purpose of this study. CKD is growing global public health problem causing socioeconomic impact. Hence, early detection and referral to nephrology services can reduce hospitalization rates after a planned dialysis start thus might improve patients’ quality of life.
