Patient Criteria for Progressive Care Units

  1. 0 Our 5 bed ICU is closing and patients will be managed on a progressive care unit/med-surg unit. I am interested in criteria that anyone may have for appropriate patient complexity on such units and criteria used to transfer patients to another facility. Our med-surg nurses have had training in managing ventilators, however staffing may be an issue and I am interested also in staffing patterns for progressive care units.

    I do not know the criteria for our PCU but their staffing is 4 to 1.
