look up any word, like eiffel tower:
 
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.
 
43.
Term used to describe aggy and anyone related to a&m.
