From the Telemetry Unit Manager:
"I strive to be supportive of frontline staff, and to provide an environment that is professional, reaches excellence, has mutual respect, and inspires values. I stress the importance of teamwork, and seek opportunities to professionally invest in every employee. I consider it a privilege to be able to work along some of the best healthcare workers in the field. We are not only co-workers, we are family."

Our schedule is generated in blocks of six weeks, and is published two weeks in advance. Everyone indicates the schedule that they would like to work, making note of any days that they have something planned, and then staffing is evened out to provide coverage 24/7, to include weekend rotations.
