Telemetry (3200-3400)

The 3200-3400 telemetry department is dedicated to providing high quality care to patients and families through patient centered care, and supports its staff with professionalism and collaboration. The team embraces change and is guided by shared leadership, accountability and positive attitudes.

The telemetry unit (3200-3400) consists of 34 rooms with telemetry monitoring capabilities. This unit provides care for adult and geriatric patients who require frequent interventions, monitoring and observation. Conditions include but are not limited to sepsis, stroke, gastrointestinal bleeding, acute myocardial infarction and congestive heart failure. Patients with respiratory compromise that requires frequent respiratory therapy, including those on ventilators with tracheostomies; those requiring medications for blood pressure and cardiac arrhythmias; and diabetes patients who need insulin drips are also treated here.

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.

The Professional Practice Committee has established behavioral standards expected of all staff while on duty. They are designed to establish a culture reflective of our team’s core values. They are practiced in every communication we have with our patients, their families, visitors, physicians and other team members. Living and working by these standards allows us to provide Patient First care, as we would expect our own family to receive if they came to Redlands Community Hospital.
