Dialysis chains and placement on the waiting list for a cadaveric kidney transplant.
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the effect of dialysis facility chain status on renal transplantation therapy. The researchers concluded that dialysis chain affiliation expands previously observed ownership-related differences in placement on the waiting list, and for-profit ownership of dialysis chain facilities appears to be a significant impediment to access to renal transplants.
