ASN/HHS COVID-19 Scarce Resources Roundtable
The American Society of Nephrology (ASN) in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) hosted two 90-minute sessions with clinicians who were practicing in the acute in-hospital nephrology setting and experiencing a surge in COVID-19 outbreaks. The roundtable sessions explored challenges, lessons learned, and sought to identify best practices in acute in-hospital nephrology settings experiencing an acute and or a prolonged surge in COVID-19 outbreaks. Numerous treatment and logistical areas were explored, lessons learned were discussed, and participants shared recommendations for the future as facilities continue to care for patients through this and future pandemics.

ASN COVID-19 Toolkit for Nephrology Clinicians: Preparing for a Surge
In response to the increasing COVID-19 spread across the United States, the American Society of Nephrology (ASN) COVID-19 Response Team has curated the following recommendations developed by nephrologists and nephrology team members. We hope that by sharing these promising practices for the care of patients receiving renal replacement therapy (RRT), the reader will be assisted by the experiences of professionals who were on the front lines early in the COVID-19 pandemic. The information and resources contained in this Toolkit discuss general considerations across nephrology care settings, outpatient dialysis, dialysis in the acute setting, urgent start peritoneal dialysis, home dialysis, and the care of the transplant patient.
