A patient will stay in ICU until he/she is treated and signed out of hospital, or die. You cannot transfer out of ICU to another department currently because you cannot degrade the type of care given to a patient, ICU being the highest level.

That's no quite true. Patients who are put in ICU will be checked during Doctors Rounds (start of day shift) and if found to be stable will be sent to HDU wards. You can't manually request the patient be checked, it can only happen automatically once at the start of each day. I don't know what requirements there are since I always treat everything on ICU patients manually. But there is at least some time requirement. If you treat an ICU patient during the night they won't be considered stable once the day shift starts, they have to spent some minimum amount of time recovering first.
