Can Anti-rejection Medication Cause Kidney Failure?

My husband is a heart transplant recipient (5yrs.) and is now undergoing dialysis after a hospital-acquired infection and antibiotic treatment. He's hoping this is temporary. Can kidneys regain function? Does anti-rejection medication cause kidney failure?
