What Do Biomedical Dialysis Technicians Do?

Biomedical Technicians support safe, comfortable and efficient patient care by ensuring proper operation of dialysis-related systems. These systems include dialysis machines, water treatment equipment, floor scales, reuse machines, centrifuges, infusion pumps and other ancillary medical equipment. Biomed Dialysis Technicians may be responsible for dozens of dialysis-related machines and may work for more than one facility. Though these duties may take up the bulk of their schedule, there are other tasks a Biomedical Technician will attend to as well.

Documentation and Procedure Adherence

This may include:

  • Completion and maintenance of required documentation.
  • Management of performance checks, tests and results.
  • Collection, preparation and submission of chemical and microbiological test samples.
  • Inventory of repair and maintenance parts and systems.
  • Management of supply order, packing list and invoice documentation.

Communication and Training

Technicians may also be responsible for educational sessions and informal training of other technicians, renal nurses and patient care technicians (PCTs). A biomedical hemodialysis professional may communicate with patients, vendors, office staff and other health care professionals as well as attend trainings for new practices, systems or processes. They will also need to maintain good working relationships with equipment and supply vendors.

Auxiliary Tasks

Many Biomed Technicians also complete sanitization or maintenance tasks as needed, and are frequently involved in Regulated Medical Waste programs. Some even spend a portion of their time as Certified Hemodialysis Technicians, alternating between patient and equipment care as needed.
