    Oh i DESPISE that TERM!! I always refered to those pts. as "people who need assistance with mealtime." Wordy, yes, but much better in the respect dept.

    referring to patients as "clients" or "customers"... gag me!

    i hate the word "duodenum," never quite know how to pronounce that or "angina" without sounding like an idiot

    i must agree with "smegma" EW! as well as "fecal" "stool" "secretions" "discharge" "oozing" "lesion" "sore" "chancre" :uhoh21: yuck must i go on?

    I dont like referring to pt.s that need assistance with meals as "feeders". Again reminds me of a sci-fi/horror movie. "THE FEEDERS" dun dun-dunnnn.
