The Progressive Patient Care (PPC) program, that classifies patients according to their type and degree of care they need, has many benefits for the patient, the physician, the nurse, and those involved in the hospital's operation. But we have some problems from the practical point of view, that is, for instance, what's the matter connected with patient's movement from his nursing unit to another unit in proportion as the various stages of his illness. We have to throw light on what questions do arise when we introduce PPC program in our hospitals. This paper is the results of investigation on PPC program as it is being carried out at Tsukuba University Hospital. The results were compared with norms already established through similar studies in the general hospital without PPC program. We would like to determine the baseline for architectural patterns of PPC program on the ground of these facts.
