Nurses. They're the ones that keep you alive when the doctor isn't around. With that kind of responsibility, they have to get creative with medical acronyms, their nursing slang, so that they can communicate potentially sensitive information to their nursing staff without making you worry. These nursing terms can range from administrative short-hands, to pretty creative ways to warn the other nurses how horrible of a patient you have been! Don't be a bad patient... medical jargon can be pretty wordy, so this nursing lingo can help communicate their needs more efficiently as well. from basic ER acronyms, to the most obscure nurse slang.
