Have you ever run into an acquaintance at a reception and called him or her by the wrong name only to realize it later that evening? I blush with embarrassment reflecting on those faux pas. My grandmother infamously perfected the art. She would run through the list of names of all her grandchildren before coming to my name then exclaim she was pleased to see me. I loved her. In a health care world riddled with acronyms, confusion abounds. You might, for example think that HONDA is an automobile-related acronym. But it could just as easily mean Hypertensive Obese Non-compliant Diabetic Adult, of which I have cared for a few. I could go on, but it would be NQR, Not Quite Right of me to do so; you might even think my ruminations were the result of VSGP, a Very Shallow Gene Pool.
