Salary: $10.25-15.91/hr

Basic Functions:

This position embodies the Memorial Health System Performance Excellence Standards of Safety, Courtesy, Quality, and Efficiency that support our mission, vision and values. These standards are evident in the daily work, which includes the following:

Under supervision of the registered nurse, performs a variety of tasks and services to assist in the provision of care and comfort for patients,
provides care appropriate to the age of the patients served,
reports and records observations, and
contributes to the efficient functioning of the unit.
All duties are performed in accordance with established, policies, procedures, standards and guidelines.


A Patient Care Technician at Memorial Medical Center means becoming a part of a Magnet hospital that raises the bar for excellence. The MMC environment expects high-quality care for patients and PCTs who want to advance learning to ensure they can be the best patient care technician possible. A quality PCT not only understands, but also exhibits that �¢����care starts with caring.�¢���� Hospital care is about caring for people and the communities that we serve. Above all else, working at Memorial means we expect you to exceed customer expectations. You can do this by treating each patient as if they are the only one you are caring for that day, being the calm voice for the family, finding the answers when you don�¢����t have one, and displaying compassion in all interactions.


A typical day on any unit consists of safety huddles, engaging as an active member of bedside shift report, completing the daily basic care of the unit�¢����s patients, bedside charting, and committing daily to being a positive member of each patient�¢����s plan of care. Most patients have more than one physician providing care. As this can be overwhelming for patients and families, it is the responsibility of the PCT to help the nurse keep these individuals informed about the plan and expected outcomes.
