The hemodialysis technician also addresses any questions or concerns that the patient or their loved ones may have related to equipment. After the patient is secure, the hemodialysis technician operates the dialysis machinery and ensures continued patient comfort. After the dialysis process is complete, the hemodialysis technician helps the patient exit the dialysis machine and escorts them into the care of another healthcare professional.
