When I did my surgery observation I got pimped by the surgeon about cardiothoracic anatomy and by the nurse on cardiac medications
- Jun 3, '12 by RN SamSo many definitions for pimping. Could mean you are an employer of *ahem* or that something/someone is really cool. If this were the advertising/promoting type... 50 shades of grey anyone? . Just kidding.

Very medical related.
