Patient focused professional patient care technician providing care and support in a critical care unit. I handle heavy patient volumes while providing customized care to each patient and family. I respond to patients with promptness and empathy while meeting the critical needs of the nurses and patients. I am skilled at collecting specimens, helping with sterile procedures, as well as the cleaning of patient rooms and equipment. I am able to communicate with families along with the patient and have a compassionate and dedicated attitude to all of my patients. I have 14 years experience of being a patient care technician in the cardiac ICU at Children's Medical Center which has taught me a great deal about how to be patient centered and be efficient in my daily care of all of my patients in a 32 bed unit. I have also learned to anticipate what the providers need in procedures since I assist in all the sterile procedures that are preformed on the unit. I am dedicated to my profession and my unit and have help to precept other patient care technicians to work and dedicate themselves to my unit as well. I am dedicated and want to provide optimal care to all of my patients.
