Job Description & Requirements

Patient Sitter Duties and Responsibilities

 

Observe Patients

Patient sitters position themselves in their assigned patient’s room to maintain constant visual observation of them. They need to make sure that the patient is never alone or out of sight unless they’ve been instructed otherwise by the nurse. Before being assigned a patient, patient sitters receive a verbal report from the nurse regarding what to look out for, what to report, and to whom.

Listen to Patient Concerns

If the patient has any worries or concerns about how they’re feeling, or if their symptoms are worsening, patient sitters listen to these problems and relay them to the appropriate nurse so that further action can be taken if necessary.

Maintain Patient Environments

Patient sitters provide comfort for the patients they’re responsible for, looking out for their safety and ensuring they’re satisfied with the level of care they’re receiving. They make sure the room is safe, clean, and meets the regulations set by the nursing home or hospital.
