Haven't seen the one we made up at my place of employment....CTPC: crazier than a pet coon. Yep, small rural hospital, but this works!

Some terminology I've come across in psych:

B52= 50 of benadryl, 5 of Haldol, and 2 of Ativan (nearly a staple of all psych admits!)

F. U. B. A. R. : effed up beyond all reason (usually those so high or drunk they have no clue what's going on)

Growing wings: those patients who are looking for a way to elope the locked unit

Hidden treasure: the crazy things we find in crazier places... My fave was the mp3 player (complete with headphones) in a woman's nether regions...

Bed bound: someone in restraints

And happy hour. When night time meds were given out lol.

TSTL - too stupid to live. Generally falls under the umbrella of "sometimes the purpose of your life is simply to serve as a warning to others" Demotivators.

Love this one, goes well with mine:

TFTB - Too Fat To Breathe, morbidly obese patients that come in in respiratory distress, usually frequent fliers

Where I work, sometimes when staff goes out for a smoke, it's termed an air quality check.
We always called it going out to check the weather.
