What is a Patient Care Technician?

As a multi-skilled healthcare worker, Patient Care Technicians (PCTs) perform duties under the supervision of a registered nurse. PCTs carry out essential bedside protocols necessary in hospital settings, such as taking vital signs, drawing blood, and operating various types of monitoring equipment. As a patient-facing worker, it is imperative that the PCT be knowledgeable and compassionate in his or her approach with patients.
