Thank you Alan for bringing the conversation back to a broader issue ;-).
Messiness of terminology is problematic in many facets of patient safety.
What terms do you think cause the most trouble in trying to not only
communicate with our professional peers, but with our patients and families
around Dx error and improvement efforts?
When you respond to this question - pls note either "peer" or "patient" in
the subject line above to streamline the comments abit.

Those of you who have paid attention to my past suggestions about
standardization might see in this exchange the problems that surface when
standards are absent. Some would assign to chronic renal insufficiency
those whom others think normal.
Have a nice day.
