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."
That gomer down in room 13 just fell trying to climb out of bed and now he's bleeding all over my floor.

A huge pile (in reference to Gomer Pyle) or line of any powder-type of substance that is to be snorted or inhaled using a straw into the nostril.
I've only been doing small lines lately, so I figured I was ready to step it up by snorting a gomer.

A pleasant but dim-witted person who is thick as a board, a real local yokel.

"It was actually pretty funny. She was one of my little sister's friends. She walked in on us on my bedroom floor."
"She walked in on you and your sister?!"

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.
