Staggered

You are at exactly zero hit points. You may take a single move action or standard action each round (but not both, nor can you take full attack or full-round actions). You can still take free actions, but not swift or immediate actions. You can take move actions without further injuring yourself, but if you perform any standard action (or any other strenuous action), you take 1 point of damage after completing the act. Unless your activity increased your hit points, you are now at -1 hit points and dying.
Staggered does not apply to monsters, since they are slain when they reach 0 or fewer hit points. If a monster needs to remain alive for plot reasons, being reduced to exactly 0 hit points knocks the creature Unconscious.
In general, very few creatures are capable of inflicting the staggered condition as a special attack (though all of them can do it through damage, given the opportunity).
