The machine that does this work is handled by a dialysis technician. The technician is trained person who can operate the machine and administer dialysis to patients suffering from kidney diseases. He or she has to prepare the patients first, take their vital signs, and then carry on with the procedure.

Subject: Application for the position of Dialysis Technician
Dear Mr. Jackson,
I am mailing this cover letter and my resume to inquire and apply for a Dialysis Technician position at Tender Dialysis Center. I am a certified Dialysis Technician with five years experience and looking for a new setting where I can use my skills for the benefits of patients and at the same time add to my professional development.
Working with dialysis patients and operating a dialysis machine daily, I am thorough with the entire procedure. If somebody wakes me up in the mid-night and asks me a question on handling and operating the machine, my answer will hit the jackpot. Further, I have a unique knack of befriending patients and explaining them how I would be administering dialysis to them. Talking in a frank and friendly tone helps the patients in relieving tension.
I love being organized in the workplace. It helps in keeping stress at bay and smooth functioning. The moment I enter the setting, I check the list of the patients for dialysis and then chalk out a plan to cover all of them in my shift. Hence, nobody goes unattended. Before beginning the dialysis process, I weigh the patients, check the vitals, and hook them to the necessary devices to start the procedure. While the procedure is still going on, I keep monitoring both the patient and the machine. If the machine needs any adjustments, I do it promptly.
I am good at mixing the solution according to the formula. I can also transport patients to the dialysis room, position them on the lounge chair, and prepare the machine for use. I hope by the end of this cover letter, you must have judged me worth for the Dialysis Technician position. I appreciate your time and consideration.
