Job Description for Hemodialysis Technician

Hemodialysis technicians must be able to monitor patients' health status to determine if problems are occurring, which includes interviewing patients and collecting health-related data. They are also responsible for educating patients who undergo home dialysis in how to operate their machines, perform routine maintenance, and troubleshoot everyday problems. Additionally, they perform general dialysis-related maintenance care for patients, such as maintaining fistulas, shunts, and catheters.
