Job Description for Dialysis Equipment Technician

Dialysis equipment technicians generally work in hospital settings and are responsible for ensuring that dialysis equipment is always performing optimally, which involves both routing-cleaning and disinfection. When problems arise with equipment, these technicians may do some basic troubleshooting or escalate the problem to the manufacturer so the machine can be repaired or replaced. They may also work directly with patients and oversee the dialysis process under the supervision of a registered nurse.

Dialysis equipment technicians begin and end dialysis sessions by applying and removing necessary equipment to the patient, as well as monitor the patients and machines during the process. They must notify the nurse if any problems arise, so strong communication skills are important in order to help patients feel at ease and work well with other medical staff. Records of patients and their dialysis activity may be kept by the technician, and they may also maintain inventory to ensure that all supplies are available when they are needed.

Some clerical work may be involved in this position, so proficiency with computers and knowledge of medical terminology are generally required. A high school diploma is a minimum requirement, and some jobs may require certification as a clinical hemodialysis technician; this is usually obtained at a specialized school which provides classroom instruction and supervised clinical experience.
Dialysis Equipment Technician Tasks
  • Maintain records of inventory and equipment usage.
  • Explain treatment procedures, in-home treatments and physicians' instructions to patients.
  • Interview patients to measure their vital signs and weight before and after dialysis.
  • Start equipment and observe gauges and equipment operation to detect malfunctions and to ensure equipment is operating to prescribed standards.
  • Disinfect and sterilize equipment using sterilizers, aerators, and washers.
