  • Abstract : — Dialysis is a process for removing waste and excess water from the blood, and is used primarily as an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. It may be used for those with an acute disturbance in kidney function (acute kidney injury, previously acute renal failure), or progressive but chronically worsening kidney function–a state known as chronic kidney disease stage 5 (previously chronic renal failure or end-stage renal disease). According to the absence or specialized authorities that control and regulate operation of haemodialysis may cause many serious problems because there is no clear Standard Operation Procedure and Policies (SOPs) for haemodialysis (HD) machine applied in Sudan. The objective of this work is to assessment the efficiency and safety of two groups: Group one, six centers of haemodialysis in Khartoum state (Used machines). Group two: twenty Fresenius and twenty Gambro donated machines. This work to protect patient from the risk, Improve the quality of haemodialysis and patient outcomes, provide employers with operational information necessary to perform a job properly, to insure quality for dialysis including prevent risk, correct error, detect deviations, and improve efficiency, and reduce costs. The steps of this work are tested the efficiency and safety for HD machines which include: technical specification, operation requirement, electrical safety, decontamination and the environmental procedures. From group one the total numbers of YES was 160 and total numbers of NO was 26. The percentages are 86.02% and 13.98% for YES and NO respectively. The efficiency and safety for group one is 61.29% and 85% for group two. The result shows that from group one 38.71% is the absence of the efficiency and safety so these centers need to apply The SOPs for HD machine. From group two 15% of the HD machines were rejected. This work is a case study for small sample space which contains two event (group one and group 2) to test the efficiency and safety of the HD machines.It is important for safely healthcare and this it is the beginning step to improve the use of the HD machine to give a better work in Sudan.
