Efficient and supportive work environment
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – August 4, 2016
As a patient care technician, I was in charge of caring for 9-13 patients on a given day. This included, but was not limited to, bathing, bed changes, ambulation, feeding, toileting, phlebotomy, and electrocardiograms. During the course of my employment, I was applying to physician assistant school and the staff on the unit were very supportive in my career aspirations. They helped me network and get the experience I needed to be accepted into my top choice program. Management was superior. The hardest aspect of the job was the physical demands of transferring patients, re-positioning them and standing for extended periods of time. Nonetheless, the most enjoyable aspect of the job was a supportive and strong group of colleagues that were available for assistance if needed.
