Lifeline (and Life Line) is not listed in Dialysis Facility Compare as a dialysis provider. However, Lifeline is listed on the Medicare website as a supply company in Davie, FL. This means that it must be a Method II supply company. Method II supply companies operate under contract with dialysis providers. Dialysis providers are responsible for the services that Method II supply companies provide.
You previously posted messages on 1/11/07 and 1/16/07 criticizing this company. If you believe this company is unsafe because the technician who works on the home machines is incompetent, you have a responsibility to report it and the clinic that contracts with it to state survey agency and to the ESRD Network. This would be a more effective way of making sure that the company employs qualified and trained (competent) staff than posting 3 messages to Home Dialysis Central. I know nothing about this company. If you feel so strongly about the care the company is delivering yet you're unwilling to report it even though you say you're a technician, is it possible you could have another reason for criticizing this company?
