Hi, do you have any advice for writing about a hospital and understanding medical terms? I've looked at a few medical textbooks but it's going over my head and I was just wondering if there was a list or website that gave the proper names with it's meanings in simple terms? Thanks.

I’m not aware of any site like that (besides maybe WebMd?) but if anyone does, it’d be great if you could send a link!

However, I’d also recommend that if you know someone who is a doctor or a nurse that you ask them for help with terminology. Or they may at least be able to point you in the right direction of where you can find out.
