I need to know how patients are transported off of telemetry in other hospitals. At our facility we need a doctor's order(most do not want to make that call). This means that patients must be accompanied by an RN with portable monitor. We have 36 beds and on any one day at least half of the unit must leave the unit for testing or hemodialysis. HELP!

Patients at my hospital need an order to be transported w/o telemetry monitoring. Most MDs are willing to put in the order, but it does take the nurse the extra step of contacted the doctor to get the order.
