Responsibilities may include:

  • Looking after the physical comfort of patients, for example helping them to wash themselves and emptying bedpans

  • Keeping departments clean and tidy, for example cleaning equipment and making and changing beds

  • Taking and recording basic observations such as blood pressure and temperature

  • Helping patients to eat and to move about, if they have mobility problems
