What does ICU stand for in a hospital?

This must be some sort of ward in an American hospital.

Intensive Care Unit. It's usually where the most critical patients are taken care of.

I drive people for a living, and 1 out of 5 times get stiffed for the fare..... It's a place to take sick or injured people to receive free medical care. Usually drunken fall victims, or people with broken noses or scrapes and/or lacerations from bar-room brawls.. Thank you Mr President for watching out for those at the bottom of the totem pole, Rest assured that those who still have even menial jobs hate you!......ICU means......your hard earned tax dollars are at work against you!

I think you are talking about the Emergency room not the intensive care unit.

No, Clyde, that is not the ICU. ICU is Intensive Care Unit & it is not only not free, but without insurance can be quite expensive. The person was asking a sincere question, requiring a sincere answer not a bitch session.
