    Finance out of hospital

    If you Google "finance out of hospital" you will get many references.

    I know another one but I am not going to post it as I would be banned for life!!!

    EDIT
    Include the quotes to force Google to search for the string.

    This is awesome. What about F.A.S.T.? This is the test done to check if someone may have had a stroke. Face, Arms, Slurred (speech), Time (to call 999). Can be searched for on the Internet.
     
  3. FAST and FOOH added.

    I'm not on Talking Point much these days but dropped in just now and spotted CDN in a thread title, helpfully defined in the first post: Community Dementia Nurse. Now added. And corrected CVA and LBD in response to a message a few days ago. Always happy to have suggestions for additions or corrections, and just delighted to know that people are still finding it useful.

    Except on TP, where it often refers to Bowel Movement! [emoji15]

    Wow! That's quite a list - many thanks for the link as that will really help me understand posts better until I become more familiar with the terms etc.
    Thanks for the comments and your point Canary re. making references less subjective - good point.
