Town and Country, Mo (KSDK) -- U.S. Renal Care West County reopened Friday after eight dialysis patients receiving treatment became sick Monday.

Tom Weinberg of U.S. Renal Care said the company worked with the State of Missouri and Medicare program and the manufacturer of the dialysis equipment since the incident to determine that it is safe to provide treatments as of 11:30 a.m.

Weinberg said four patients who are still hospitalized are stable.

A cleaning solution used in dialaysis was accidentally added to the water supply causing the illnesses.

"The health and safety of our patients is always our top priority, and we look forward to continuing to serve them and the Town and Country community," said Weinberg in a statement.
