I don’t know what we’re supposed to call a computer on wheels, other than a computer on wheels, but apparently it isn’t kosher to refer to it anymore using the appropriate acronym.
As someone who likes language, I don’t know if we can truly call a computer on wheels, a work station on wheels.
I don’t usually use a COW for anything other than charting; and although charting is work, I don’t know if it makes more sense to call a computer on wheels a work station on wheels just because I happen to stand at a computer on wheels and work. Wait, did I just make a tongue twister?
Evidently, we’re not supposed to use the term non-compliant anymore, even when we’re using the term correctly. If we have a patient who doesn’t comply with their physician’s recommendations, they’re not non-compliant, they’re now non-adherent.
I don’t want to speak for you, but I prefer to call a spade a spade.
If a patient is non-compliant, they’re non-compliant. It isn’t rocket science or brain surgery, it’s just commonsense.
It isn’t a narcotic, it’s an opioid.
I don’t know if you knew this, but an opioid isn’t a narcotic. Nope, they’re different; well, other than the fact that both bind to opioid receptors and just happen to be the same. Make sense?
Nope, didn’t think so.
