Medical Technologists Caring For You Logo 2017 12 14

Medical technologists and technicians play a critical role in our health care system. Many of them work behind the scenes doing laboratory tests or preparing medications for patients. Others work directly with patients doing x-rays, CT or MRI scans or other critical diagnostic tests.

Doctors rely on timely and accurate results from medical technologists and technicians so they can diagnose illnesses and create a treatment plan for their patients. Increased workload means that medical techs cannot complete all their work on shift, which results in many working through scheduled breaks, coming to work early, or leaving late. This can lead to delays in patient diagnosis, errors, and staff burnout.

Contact your MLA to urge the government to provide more funding to hire additional medical technologists and technicians to address workload and staffing requirements for safe and quality patient care.

REGINA: The CUPE Saskatchewan Health Care Council has released a report which indicates that increased workload and understaffing of medical technologists and technicians are putting them under extreme pressure and could compromise patient care. CUPE medical technologists and technicians provide essential services such as prepping medication, providing blood tests, X-rays, CT and MRI scans, and other diagnostic tests.

The report, titled Under Pressure: Report on the Workload of CUPE Medical Technologists and Technicians in Saskatchewan, is based on an intensive online survey of CUPE members who work as medical technologists and technicians.

Medical laboratory professionals are a critically important part of the health care team. They sort, prepare, and analyze samples from a variety of tissue and fluid samples to provide accurate and timely information that helps guide medical decisions.

CUPE medical laboratory professionals work hard every day, but during National Medical Laboratory Week let's show the public what medical laboratory professionals do, and show our support for this important work!

CUPE Saskatchewan Health Care Council's Medical Diagnostic Technologists and Technicians Committee is bringing awareness to the vital role these medical professionals perform on a daily basis.
