I had one in mind until I read yours lol and mine just fell out my brain lol
we refer to boogies as "yum-yums" from an alzhiemers pt.
my favourite at the moment is:code brown - a warnng to other staff that we are dealing with a large smelly revolting bed full of poo!!:roll
LOL code brown will use that one @ work in the dementia unit!lol
We used to say a very sick pt. that died in ER jpfrogged meaning just plain f###ing ran out of gas.
When I worked the Er we wrote on the board for self inflicted trauma: TFSTL (Too F**king Stoooopid To Live)
was not very politically correct but after awhile it is soooo true
An old one: PFBUNDY ( pretty f***ed, but unfortunately, not dead yet.)
CTD (circling the drain)
