When I was an intern, one of our ICU attendings was very distrustful of the ortho service. He had two acronyms he liked to use: FOO and FOOBA.
FOO = Found On Ortho
FOOBA = Found On Ortho Barely Alive
(I don’t think he thought much better of PM&R though. He was also quoted as saying, “Being on the rehab service is kind of like a death sentence.”)
Still, FOO and FOOBA remain two of my favorite acronyms. What are yours?
