Overview

The Progressive Telemetry Unit at John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital cares for all types of medical telemetry patients, especially those requiring pulmonary or renal care.

Scheduling & Shifts

Schedules in the Telemetry unit are flexible and RNs self-schedule. Twelve-hour shifts are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.

Clinical Support

Overall, RNs in the Telemetry unit enjoy a 4:1 patient-to-nurse ratio. RNs caring for ventilator and CAPD patients are staffed at a 3:1 ratio. All 36 beds are monitored 24 hours a day by highly trained monitor technicians. RNs also receive support from a discharge nurse, PCTs, free-floating charge nurses, a unit-based educator, pharmacist and case management team to assist with the highly complex patient population. A 24-hour Rapid Response Team is also available to assist.

Co-Worker Comments

"The Telemetry unit sees such a diverse patient population and yet we're able to work so well together to achieve great outcomes for each patient. The team is so supportive here, no matter what, someone always has your back. From co-workers to management, the support I receive is incredible. It's what makes John C. Lincoln home."
