Norcoon. (nohr-koon). noun; slang.
1. A patient who keeps coming back to your clinic/ER/Urgent Care in the hopes of getting a refill on pain medication, even though you told him/her that there would be no more refills at the time of the initial prescription.
2. An apparently-calm patient with an apparently-innocent request for a pain med refill, who becomes suddenly vicious/rude/agressive when you say “No.”
Example: ‘If you keep feeding the norcoons, they’ll keep showing up on your back porch looking for more.’
Origin: Dr. Cranquis, after a long day of staving off rabid norcoons.
Synonyms: Vicopossum, Squirreltram.
