What is a Patient Care Technician?
Doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals rely on patient care technicians to assist with the critical day-to-day care some patients require. They provide hands-on assistance to serve patients’ basic needs, which greatly impacts the lives of their patients and their patients’ families.
As a patient care tech, you may be able to perform some or all the following tasks:
- Provide basic patient care — bathing, feeding, catheter care, etc.
- Acquire, distribute, and administer patient care supplies
- Perform safety checks and ensure cleanliness in patient rooms
- Accommodate any additional patient needs
- Obtain EKG readings and monitor vital signs
- Perform phlebotomy procedures
- Provide emotional support to patients and families, particularly coping with grief and death
Healthcare is evolving, and patient care technicians are in higher demand than ever before. Patient care technicians are also facing increasing responsibilities in their role due to a shortage of LPNs in hospitals combined with the increasing patient hospitalizations. Patient care technicians who are NHA certified (CPCT/A) are better prepared to tackle these responsibilities than CNAs or PCTs who are not certified.
