Launceston General Hospital's Ann Clancy is often referred to as the face of the hospital.
After more than four decades on the front reception and in and around the hospital there aren't many staff she doesn't know.
But recently Ms Clancy found herself in a totally different position - as a patient in the Northern Cardiac Care Unit.
While there she noticed that telemetry monitors were high in demand, used on many patients including herself.

Her friends and colleagues wanted to recognise the excellent care given to Ms Cancy by giving something back.
On Wednesday the group, known collectively as "the hospital girls" hosted a cake stall and raffle.
Their aim was to raise enough money to buy one telemetry unit for the NCCU, but after raising more than $2800 they should have enough to buy two.
Organiser Christine Shepherd said the cakes sold out in record time.
"It was a great day and we are really happy with how things went," she said.
Telemetry monitors are used to measure the electrical activity of a heart for an extended time.
The recordings taken during telemetry monitoring show if there are problems with how a heart beats.
