Telemetry (2100)

The telemetry unit (2100) consists of 40 beds (20 private rooms plus ten semi-private), each with telemetry and obstructive sleep apnea monitors. This unit provides quality, compassionate and age-appropriate healthcare to adults and geriatric patients who require frequent interventions, monitoring and multidisciplinary teamwork. Conditions include but are not limited to chest pain, stable NSTEMI, cardiac arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation with RVR, sepsis, respiratory distress and neuro with an emphasis on stroke. Every nurse is NIH Stroke Scale certified and has the necessary skills to care for this unique patient population.

The nursing staff and multidisciplinary team of respiratory, physical, speech and occupational therapists, case managers and social workers, pharmacists and physicians work together to provide care focused on the restoration of health, preservation of patients’ rights and achieving the highest level of functioning before discharge. Nurses place emphasis on the patient’s spiritual, psychosocial and emotional wellness.

Our 2100 nurses belong to the Professional Practice Committee, aimed at empowering staff to improve their satisfaction, processes and the patient’s experience. Research plays a large role in its work and strengthens the 2100 nursing voice. The nurses pursue various continuing education and certifications, including Progressive Care Nurse (PCCN) and chemotherapy certification, nurse mentor or nurse preceptor. Preceptors go on to extensively train new nurses before they start out on their own, who are themselves an important part of the team.
