The Progressive ICU at the University of Minnesota Medical Center is a progressive critical care unit serving a patient population 18 years and older with moderate or potentially severe physiologic instability requiring frequent nursing assessment and intervention every 1 to 2 hours for the majority of the shift. This patient population requires less care than the other ICUs at the University Hospital, but more care than a general medical surgical unit. The majority of patients require cardiac monitoring. Common patient populations include post kidney/pancreas transplants, patients admitted with respiratory failure, sepsis, cardiac complications, to name a few diagnoses. The nurse patient ratio is a mix of 1:2 and 1:3 on all shifts. Bed capacity is 31.
