1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Hiv patients are not segregated from the other patients.
All of the dialysis personnel use "universal precautions" and there is minimal risk of any blood contamination.

In brief: Absolutely

Hiv is spread via blood transfusion, sexual intercourse and intravenous drug use.
It can not be transmitted during a dialysis treatment. There are many HIV positive patients who are on dialysis that sit next and touch non-hiv individuals who are also on dialysis and nothing happens.
