Cost of tx micu vs sicu

  1. It appears that treating sicu patients is more costly to the hospital than treating micu patients (only if we look at icu costs, excluding anything that precedes that period, e.g. Surgery costs). Do you know why this is the case? What would explain icu cost differences between the two groups?

    This sounds like a homework question to me. What do you think? What research have you done?
