Congratulations on your new position! At our facility, the TCU is very much like the med/surg units that many of us use to work on. The acuity can be quite high, and the diagnoses are all over the board. It's a great unit to start with, because the length of stay is a little longer so you can learn more from your patients. You will most certainly see diabetes, heart disease, chronic infections, etc. You are likely to have people admitted with significant pressure ulcers, and people who have been non-compliant with their care at home resulting in re-hospitalization.
