Uneven balance between pay and job requirements
Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Pinellas County, FL – December 9, 2018
As a PCT, Baycare doesn't ask, but requires you to have additional training(one day).
Your duties, in addition to total patient care, include ambulating the pt at a minimum of 3 times a day(if this is not achieved, you ARE reprimanded), bladder scans, EKGs, Foley catheter insertion, etc..
All this AND help other staff members with their patients.
This would not be an issue except Baycare is not willing to pay their PCTs a decent wage, and the management seems unwilling or incapable of getting you a pay raise.
Excellent team members who truly do work as a team
