Worthy of pain and suffering. Deserving of "heroic" medical measures. Based on "sponge-worthy."
Scenario 1:
Med Student: "Ms. Jones has a multi-organ failure, sir."
Senior MD: "Is she flog-worthy?"
Med Student: "She was independent before all this happened."
Senior MD: "Flog away. Intubated her, line her up, and start the pressors. Do everything you can to keep her alive!"

Scenario 2:
Med Student: "Ms. Jonese has multi-organ failure, sir."
Senior MD: "Is she flog-worthy?"
Med Student: "She is totally demented, has no family, and lives in a nursing home. She is DNR-DNI."
Senior MD: Do not flog her. We're withdrawing care."
