The Telemetry Unit is a seven bed unit that provides continuous cardiac monitoring, and specialized care. A majority of the patients admitted to this unit have heart concerns. Others are patients with conditions such as pneumonia or renal failure, or are surgical patients who need heart monitoring.
Patients who are admitted with a primary cardiac focus will be connected to telemetry equipment that monitors the activity of the heart, while permitting freedom of movement around the unit. Registered nurses who are knowledgeable in arrhythmia interpretation view patient heart activity through a centralized computer system. This allows our nurses and physicians to respond immediately to any changes in the patient's cardiac condition.
