Gorky, Gorki??

I have heard the term gork and or Gorky many times in medical context and have not understood exactly what this means and where it originates. I even asked a nurse today after she used the term Gorky and she said she truly doesn’t know but that she uses it to describe ones LOC after medical procedure.




It’s your use of LOC that I don’t get.

Thank you,
I get it now.


Kind of an altered “level of consciousness”
