Pharr man struggling with dialysis supply issues

0

A Pharr man who depends on daily eight-hour dialysis treatments to stay alive says he only has enough supplies for two more days.

Michael David Cavazos said the company he relies on to deliver dialysis supplies has not delivered on time since November.

When the supplies arrive, he says they are incomplete.

“They deliver the supplies, but the solution is missing,” Cavazos said of Fresenius Medical Care.

Cavazos said without the supplies he could die.

“They said they’d come on Thursday and I’d have another delivery on the 23rd – but I’m scared,” Cavazos said.

Channel Five News contacted Fresenius Medical Care who responded with a statement that the omicron variant caused a wave of infections resulting in staff absences and transport delays.

“We are working with regional members of the National Guard – if necessary – to supplement our strength to meet this unprecedented challenge,” the company said in the statement.
