Sue Montgomery, RN, BSN, granted me permission to link to her article, “WhenMed-Surg Nurses Care for Dying Patients” in Working Nurse magazine.
Here are some medical acronyms and terms that were new to me:
- Med-Surg = Medical-Surgical. This refers to a sub-specialty of nursing that cares for patients with medical and surgical needs.
- ICU = Intensive Care Unit
- ATC = Around The Clock
- PRN = As needed
- IV = Intravenously
