Patient care is the support that is given to patients and their families in terms of advice for diagnosis and treatment in order to make new decision making models for the patients. The patients are given guidelines to change their life style in order to make better treatments against health related diseases. They are given educational support to get information about the diseases.
Patient care technicians at the basic level provide the most routine forms of daily patient care. They monitor and record the patients' vital signs and collect laboratory specimens for testing. They help patients eat, dress and attend to personal hygiene, and change their bedding and linens as necessary.
