working as tech on dialysis?

  1. hi I was wondering what exactly does a tech do on the dialysis floor? I got an offer to work there on on a med-surg and i don't really want to work on med-srg so could anyone tell me what i would be responsible for?

    thank you

    Last night I talked to a nurse that just transfered to our renal floor from the dialysis unit about what the techs did. Here's what I found out:

    vital signs and weight before and after treatment
    set up the machine
    cleaning patients as needed
    keeping supplies stock

    She said that the techs usually stay really busy.
