Is there any literature available to support the need for a CAPD patient to be placed in a private room versus a non private room in an acute care setting.

There are no data that I am aware of comparing private rooms vs. non private rooms  when peritoneal dialysis patients are admitted to the hospital.  My own feeling (not data driven) is that whenever possible PD patients have a private room to limit the number of people present when exchanges are done.
