ACOPIA


Acopia is a coded term that refers to a patient with a total inability to cope with physical symptoms such as pain, fatigue and dizziness. It is an extreme version of dyscopia, which means difficulty coping with adversity. Acopia patients seek medical care at the earliest indication of distress without waiting to see if they get better naturally and without trying any over-the-counter or home remedies. They seldom follow the doctor’s instructions. Acopia can also be used to describe parents who can’t cope with the minor illnesses of their infants and young children.

BEEMER
BeeMer means the patient has a high body mass index, or BMI — a polite way of saying that he or she is huge.

CODE BROWN Dead
Code Brown is a poop emergency, meaning that a patient has defecated in bed or on the floor. It’s a play on Code Blue, which refers to CPR and other procedures used to resuscitate a patient whose heart has stopped. Code Brown stories are told most often by the ones tasked with the job of cleaning them up.
the ones tasked with the job of cleaning them up.

FREQUENT FLYER
Frequent Flyer is code for a patient with so many visits to the ER in a short period of time that they’re on a first-name basis with ER doctors and nurses. The term is usually stated with contempt, as many frequent flyers are poor and uninsured. Another frustration with frequent flyers is that the ER is their go-to place for medical care because they don’t have a family doctor, nurse practitioner or internist to provide basic primary care.

FTD ShockedAngry
FTD, which is short for Failure To Die. That’s a slang term used to depict a patient with dementia and a poor quality of life. Translation: the resident believes that, in the, event of a cardiac arrest, it would be futile to try and save the patient.

FULL CODE

Full Code means if your heart stops, the doctors do a full and proper heart resuscitation that includes CPR, electric shocks to the heart and a ventilator.

HOLLYWOOD CODE ShockedAngry
Hollywood Code (also known as a Slow Code) means a pretend resuscitation in which the doctors will look like they’re trying to save him even though they aren’t.

HORRENDOMA Ouch
Horrendoma is a common piece of medical slang for a situation that is awful for the patient and well worth recounting to fellow residents – a vast understatement in this case. The word has horrendously in its root plus the suffix ‘oma’ which means a mass or a tumour (as in carcinoma).

MEDWIFE
Medwife is a derogatory slang term for a midwife who thinks she’s an obstetrician, should be accorded the same respect as OBGYNs and should occupy a similar position in the hospital hierarchy. The respect that the medwife wishes is often inversely proportional to their actual knowledge and expertise.

SOCIAL INJURIES LOL
Social injuries is code for a patient who practices autoeroticism by inserting objects into the rectum. These include zucchinis, cucumbers, deodorant spray cans, wax candles and billiard ball. Social injuries only come to the attention of general surgeons when the patient requires medical assistance in removing the foreign object.

SUITCASE SIGN
Suitcase sign (a.k.a. positive suitcase sign) is a term used by doctors and nurses that refers to patients who bring a packed suitcase with them to the ER. Health professionals use the term derisively by health professions in reference to patients who have already decided they need to be admitted to hospital before hearing the doctor’s opinion. In the culture of medicine, nothing ticks off health professionals more than having their hands tied by patients.

THREE CLINIC UNITS ShockedLOL
Three Clinic Units is a sneaky way of saying the patient weighs 600 pounds. Each clinic unit is equal to 200 pounds.

WHINEY PRIMEY
Whiny Primey (whine-knee prime-me) is a slang term for an overanxious woman in the late stages of her first pregnancy. Whiny primeys assume every cramp or minor contraction is the start of labour, and rush down to the hospital. Invariably, these visits are false alarms, and the woman is sent home with instructions on the symptoms of active labour. In spite of these instructions, the woman returns to the hospital again and again.

the only one that I really know is code brown, fullcode, and frequent flyer. But frequent flyer is what we call someone who keeps coming back to jail.
