Impact of cardiology nurse practitioner rounding on cardiac telemetry

PICOT Question: In patients with active telemetry orders in a 30-bed telemetry unit, will the telemetry round for the discontinuation of telemetry conducted by cardiology nurse practitioner compare to discontinuation of telemetry by primary physicians have a positive impact on length of stay in a two-month period time?
