Do you need help learning medical terminology, abbreviations, and jargon?
Saint Thomas River Park Hospital has put together a real nice medical terms and acronyms guide.
Danny’s note: of course, abbreviations vary from facility to facility and agency to agency. In example: where I work at, we’re encouraged to write things out opposed to using acronyms to prevent mistakes. Also – some acronyms are the same: PT for physical therapy or for patient. It is best to use what is suited for your agency.
Here is a link to their site which has a .pdf guide.
