Such is its acceptation in old English, and generally in the United States. In most parts of the United States, if a patient is affected with a slight indisposition, he is said to be sick; if with one more severe, he is said to be ill; (Prov.) bad, badly. In England, it most commonly means,-affected with disorder of the stomach, or nausea. A sick person, Aeger, Aegro'tus, (F.) Malade, who is under the charge of a physician is said to be a patient, or the patient of the physician. At times, but rarely, patient is used for a sick person in the abstract.
