This is a difficult one as many centres do different things some do oncall, it very much depends on the size of the service and the hospital set up.In our own centre the PD unit is open 7 days per week until 9.30pm all emergencies and telephone call are then dealt with by the nephrology wards where we can concentrate the training.Ideally you need to just have one area for out of hours emergencies so you can develop guidelines for those nurses.
