Hire Rehab Technicians

 

Rehab technicians or rehabilitation technicians provide direct assistance to licensed physical therapists in the treatment of patients. Rehab technicians perform non-clinical tasks in the rehabilitation department and assist with patient care under the direct supervision of a licensed physical therapist. Rehab technicians work in hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centers, or sports rehabilitation facilities and work on a daytime schedule. Generally, rehab technicians do not work nights. However, if assigned to a hospital, they may adjust their shift to an earlier or later time to accommodate a patient and physical therapist’s agreed treatment schedule. 

When looking for rehab technicians, hiring managers search for individuals who work well with a team and are familiar with therapeutic methods and techniques. A well-crafted job description will boost your chances of attracting ideal candidates. Be detailed yet concise, complete yet friendly. Think like a candidate and include information that answers questions that they may already have.

To be sure, include both rehab technicians and rehabilitation technicians in the job description so that your posting shows up on more search results pages. There are hiring platforms, social media groups, and online communities where rehab techs are likely to see the posting. If possible, ask employees for referrals. Let the healthcare facility know about the job vacancy for a rehab technician. Your ideal candidate may be an employee’s friend, cousin, neighbor, or schoolmate. 

 

Responsibilities of a Rehab Technician 

The responsibilities of rehab technicians fall mainly under clerical duties. Upon the patient’s arrival at the facility, rehab technicians obtain their personal information, medical history, and other relevant health information under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist. The purpose is to update and verify their records. Rehab technicians ensure that all patient records are updated and accurate. 

Rehab technicians help patients move from one area of the facility to another using proper body mechanics. They make sure that patients have all the needed support and equipment like wheelchairs to move within the facility. Depending on the need, rehab technicians arrange for transportation of patients to offsite appointments. 

Under the direct supervision of licensed physical therapists, rehab technicians assist in patient care and treatment like massage techniques to help in mobility or electric stimulation for functional improvement. They may also help physical therapists in more complicated physical therapy treatments and support patients while they do physical activities. 

Lastly, rehab technicians help maintain the cleanliness and organization of the facility, clean and prepare equipment, and answer calls and inquiries. 

 

Skills and Qualifications of a Rehab Technician

To qualify as a rehab technician, candidates must have a high school diploma or GED. However, most facilities also require an associate’s degree in a related field. Candidates must be physically fit in order to assist patients and are knowledgeable of physical therapy equipment and techniques. As rehab technicians communicate with patients and other team members, they must possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills. Proficiency in data entry and computer systems is preferred and a CPR certification may be required.
