Shannon, thank you for your post. I will admit that WE nurses tend to get carried away of how we use our vocabularies forgetting that the words we use on a daily basis even though may not be deem inappropriate to one, it may have an effect on another. I feel that way when people refer to one of my pt as the "pt with aids." Besides, "DS" sounds more appropriate then "downs."
