A Dialysis Technician is in a very specialized field. He or she will be in charge of overseeing the process of dialysis in patients. While they understand their particularly specialty very well, they must still be under the supervision of a doctor or nurse. A dialysis technician is not a type of doctor or nurse, but rather another position in the medical profession. As such, they still need supervision because they do not have the same training, education, or expertise as a doctor or nurse. The dialysis technician oversees this one specific aspect of a patient's treatment, but the patient will still need more overall care as well. A doctor will need to prescribe and monitor the dialysis treatment, while a nurse will need to supervise some of the more minor aspects of treatment.
