The Telemetry Unit (3200 - 3400) consists of 34 rooms each with telemetry monitoring capabilities. The unit provides care for adult and geriatric patients requiring frequent interventions, monitoring, and observation. Primary diagnosis may include but not limited to moderately stable acute myocardial infarction, unstable angina, congestive heart failure, and permanent pacemaker placement. It also includes those patients with respiratory compromise requiring frequent respiratory therapy, hemodynamically stable patients on ventilators, patients requiring drugs for blood pressure or cardiac arrhythmias, patients with GI bleed and hyperglycemic patients requiring insulin drips.
The 3rd Floor Telemetry department is dedicated to providing a caring environment through heart–centered care, and demonstrates support of its members through professionalism and collaboration. The team is guided by shared leadership, accountability and positive attitudes. It is a team which embraces change.
The staff of the 3rd Floor Telemetry department is committed to providing high quality of care to our patients and their families. The Professional Practice committee has established specific behaviors that all staff are expected to practice while on duty. These behavior standards are designed to establish a culture that is supportive of our team’s core values. They are practiced by every staff member in every communication we have with our patients, families, visitors, physicians, and other staff members with whom we come into contact. Living and working by these standards assist us in providing the kind of care we would expect our family members to receive if they came to Redlands Community Hospital. In other words… we believe in putting the patient first before everything else.
