As a medication technician (MT), your job is to prepare and administer the correct dosage of medication to patients under the supervision of a registered nurse or another qualified caregiver. You may also monitor patients for adverse reactions, document all medication you give and perform various administrative tasks in the office. Medication technicians also watch for physical and emotional changes in patients, provide assistance for daily living, and use specialized medical equipment when necessary. Most medication technicians also provide CPR and other first aid treatment as appropriate. Medication technicians are not the same as certified nursing assistants (CNA), who are rarely qualified to provide medication to patients.
