Service Support Workers (SSW)

Service Support Workers (SSWs) are assigned to work with nurses in CCTC. They assist in many ways to ensure optimal patient care is provided. They will provide assistance with patient lifts and turns, working under the direction of the nurse or respiratory therapist. SSWs do not provide any direct patient care. They also clean and restock the patient bedsides, providing support for patient care in a number of valuable ways.
