What is a Patient Sitter?

Patient sitters are compassionate and attentive healthcare workers who watch over patients to ensure their safety. A Patient Sitter's job is to observe patients in a hospital or nursing home and help other members of the care team monitor patient conditions. Patient sitters usually work under the supervision of trained nurses. A patient sitter may be asked to help complete a variety of checklist tasks while observing patients.
