What is the definition of "PCU" in hospitals?

Answer

PCU stands for progressive care units. They are becoming increasingly popular in hospitals across the United States. These units typically serve in bridging the gap between the ICU (intensive care unit) and the regular hospital floors. It is typically for patients who are too sick for the regular floors but not sick enough to be admitted to ICU.
