What Is The Role of a Patient Care Technician? 

As a Certified Patient Care Technician (CPCT), you’ll play an integral role in the healthcare team providing diverse patient care services in collaboration with physicians, nurses, PAs, NPs, and other healthcare professionals.

Patient Care Technician is one of the fastest-growing roles in healthcare today! PCTs generally work in the hospital, intensive care unit, emergency room, cardiac care unit, rehabilitation facilities, and nursing homes. They work closely with the nursing staff to deliver patient care through various responsibilities, including obtaining vital signs, collecting laboratory specimens, conducting ECGs, transporting patients & assisting with ambulation, administering medications, etc.

Furthermore, a PCT is trained to monitor and change Foley catheters, perform phlebotomy, set up feeding tubes, set up IVs, provide patient hygiene assistance including bathing, oral care, peri-care, and maintain patient rooms, etc. Because PCTs predominately functions in hospital settings, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a top skill they must embody
