Avoiding unnecessary transfusions is a key goal of anemia management. An anemic person has fewer or smaller red blood cells and less hemoglobin. Hemoglobin carries oxygen. A lower transfusion rate is better.

Infections

Dialysis treatment directly accesses your bloodstream, which create opportunities for germs to enter your body and potentially cause an infection. Lower infection rates for a center are better.

Most Effective Access to the Bloodstream

There are three types of vascular access for dialysis. Vascular access is where your blood is removed and returned during dialysis. There three types are an arteriovenous (AV) fistula, an arteriovenous (AV) graft, and a venous catheter. The AV fistula is considered the best long-term access because there is a reduced chance of infection, it allows better blood flow, and it lasts a long time.

Higher fistula rates are better.

Catheters are not ideal for permanent vascular access because they can become infected, clog, and cause veins to narrow. Lower percentage of adults with long term catheter use is better.
