Advanced CNA Skills
A patient care technician (PCT) is a healthcare professional who provides direct care and assistance to patients in various healthcare settings, such as hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and rehabilitation centers.
In addition to these responsibilities, PCTs often provide emotional support to patients and their families, helping them cope with the challenges of illness or hospitalization. They need to demonstrate good communication skills, compassion, and a patient-centered approach to care.
The specific duties and scope of practice for patient care technicians may vary depending on the healthcare facility and the state's regulations. Some PCTs may receive specialized training to work in specific areas, such as dialysis units or operating rooms.
