This busy cardiac telemetry unit not only provides care for cardiovascular patients but also provides a high level of care to our respiratory, diabetic, and endocrine disorder patients, as well as those patients with neurological, renal, vascular, and infectious disease, and other medical conditions. Our 4 West nurses are also trained to manage our continuous abdominal peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients that live in our community. These patients are admitted as inpatients, outpatients, or observation patients and are predominantly adults, though some older pediatric patients may be admitted to the unit based on their care needs and in consultation with the pediatric medical staff. Our 4 West staff demonstrate a strong work ethic based in teamwork, respect, and the desire to provide a higher level of culturally competent care to our patients.
On 4 West, Graduate Nurses will work with patients with medical or surgical diagnoses admitted as inpatients, outpatients, or observation patients.

The predominant patient populations include cardiovascular disorders, respiratory disorders, diabetes and other endocrine disorders, neurological disorders, renal disorders, vascular disorders, and infectious diseases. The cardiology patient population includes patients requiring telemetry monitoring.
