  1. None of these people are “PATIENTS” until after they are inside a hospital and were evaluated. Before that, they are just people who were in a crash!

    If you’re going to use the word “PATIENT” then maybe everyone who gets in a car and drive somewhere should be known as a potential “PATIENT!”

    • I’ve seen that, too! Always wondered why someone extracted from a crashed car would automatically be labeled a “patient.” He’s only a patient after he’s admitted to a hospital or has an office visit with his physician.
