A patient care technician (PCT) helps patients with basic tasks that they can no longer do on their own such as bathing, shaving, dressing, eating, and walking. PCTs are also responsible for taking vital signs and drawing blood and performing EKG. Occasionally, a PCT may work with grieving families or deal with other difficult situations. PCTs work in many different settings so their other daily tasks vary widely but primarily exist to improve patient care and free up other healthcare workers to do their jobs.
