Why Long Term Care Patient Care Technician with Billing (CPCT)?

Training to become a Long Term Patient Care Technician (CPCT) is a smart choice if you’re interested in helping doctors, nurses and other health care professionals provide direct patient care in a variety of health care environments. It’s a tough job that requires kindness and patience, but it can also be a fulfilling and rewarding career. Patient Care Technicians work with licensed professionals as nurses’ aides, clinical support associates and health care assistants.

CPCTs are employed in such environments as:

  • Private homes
  • Veterans’ Affairs hospitals
  • Hospice Care
  • Long-term care facilities
  • Nursing homes

CPCTs provide basic patient care, including bathing, feeding, toileting and transporting. They acquire and distributea supplies; change bed linens; perform safety checks to keep patient rooms clean; maintain clear paths in hallways; clear and return equipment that is no longer in use; obtain electrocardiogram (EKG) readings; and perform phlebotomy procedures.

More than 1.5 million elderly and disabled Americans live in more than 16,000 long-term care facilities across the country. The number of patients will grow as the population ages in the coming years.
