UAMC has been a very good place to work
Telemetry Monitor Technician (Current Employee), Tucson, AZJanuary 7, 2015
Pros: it is steady work.
Cons: it can be a very long night.
A typical day/night as a telemetry tech starts with report. It is a time to find out about the patients that you will be watching heart monitor on. The shift starts at the same time as the floor shifts so there is a lot going on with the patients at that time and it is very important to extra attention during times of higher stress for the patients. During the course of the shift we will complete 3 sets of 6 second "capture" strips that tell what rhythm, rate, and abnormalities the patient has in their heart rhythm. The hardest part of the job is having a patient "code" and the actions taken are not able to save them. In contrast the most enjoyable part is when a patient "codes" and because you alerted the RN of the events, the patient survives.

They do not utilize your skills, education and experience. Mostly used as a case manager and discharge planner. Very little use of assessment and therapy skills. Very little patient interaction.
