- Nov 21, '11 by aquarius04I just recently made the switch from assisted living to a patient care technician at a hospital. For the most part it is not that different, the biggest difference is that I take vital signs, take an EKG, get specimens and assist the nurses more often. I also feel that there is more of a sense of helping each other out in the hospital. You will also be able to see a lot more in the hospital rather than the assisted living facility.
