what are the "acute care" departments in a hospital? so far, i've uncovered:
icu ( coronary/ cardiac, neuro[neuropathy or neurology?], pediarics, neonatal, and burn)
med/ surg (is this medical/ surgical icu?)
are there more?

MICU= medical ICU, SICU= surgical ICU, Neuro= neurological ICU...some ICU's such as mine are general ICU's where we see everything

Any inpatient floor falls under the acute care umbrella. It's care, and it's acute. L&D, nephro, transplant, so on.
