7.
Any chronically debilitated patient, (usually not able to communicate due to stroke or coma) admitted to the hospital that has little or no hope for recovery. They are literally sent there so that family members can presume to live without "the guilt" of letting their loved one die with the least bit of human dignity. As a result, these poor souls die a slow, pitiful death, out of sight from their family because their family doesn't have the seeds to "pull the plug".

Literally: Get Outta My E. R.
Aunt Hazel is a gomer over at St. Vincents... her family would rather let her rot slowly in the hospital than let her die with dignity.

4.
Origin, hospital emergency room slang for extremely old, Alzheimer's ridden, mute, sick people. GOMER is an acronym for "Get Out of My Emergency Room." In the novel "House of God" (Samuel Shem, 1978) GOMERS are defined essentially as sickly old people who now because of dementia have lost whatever quality it is that makes someone a person. When GOMERS come into the hospital they are unable to communicate so the admitting doctor will order many, many, lab tests hoping to discover why the GOMER was sent to the hospital. GOMERS never come to the hospital, they are only sent. This battery of tests is sometimes called a "Gomer-Gram."
