We are similar to you, with a dedicated community nursing team and us as techs that support the home programme.
We have our MDT meetings weekly discharging new patients now on the 6008. Our existing patients are on the 5008S with the remote.
As you'll know, there is currently no option for the remote with the 6008 but this
a) hasn't yet stopped anyone going home and
b) there doesn't seem to be a desire for this mod on the 6008 from Germany although Manchester are trying to push it.
We send patients home on the NxStage only if there is a desire for it from the patient due to lifestyle or the home environment won't support a traditional machine and installation. This could be rental/temporary housing etc.
So in other words - we mirror eachother! :-)
