    I've always wondered what it means when hospital people say, "Dr. Smith to X-ray, stat!"

    What the hell does "stat" mean?

    Apologies in advance for the question.

    stat=ASAP. It's an abbreviation of the Latin word "statim" which means "immediately."

    Thanks, Bad Guy... much appreciated.

    novelist: Haven't watched it since Anthony Edwards departed, but at least I'll know the definition while watching reruns.

    Mods: Please feel free to lock this sucker, thanks to Bad Guy's assistance.
