The Medical Telemetry Unit is an inpatient medical unit specializing in the care of the acutely ill patient. The unit serves young adult, mature adult, and older adult patient populations. Medical Telemetry status is indicated for patients whose care may be achieved outside of the Critical Care Unit (CCU), who require closer nursing observation, more frequent interventions and /or technical supports (continuous EKG monitoring, continuous 02 saturation monitoring, BiPap on stable parameters). All beds have cardiac telemetry capability. Patient care is delivered in collaboration with patients, families, and all professional disciplines.
The registered nurse provides high quality, skilled nursing services to assist patients to achieve optimum health and functional health status following an illness requiring hospitalization. Through collaboration with physicians and other health care professionals, the nurse prepares the patient and family for discharge to home or another setting for continued care.
