Before removing the needles the nurse will give you a glove to put on your hand when pressing the spot of the puncture. After removing the needles, you must be patient and wait the bleeding from the fistula to stop. The nurse will give you protective patches or a bandage.
With view to your safety, it is required not to leave the room without informing the nurse for that. Be sure that you feel well and you can move without any help.
