At Army hospitals, they have gone back and forth on this issue for a variety of reasons. Once I was in a trauma room with a Veteran who had been injured seriously in auto accident. He was incoherent and not cooperative, until I came alongside him and called him by the rank he had held 30+ years earlier - "Sergeant" Suddenly he seemed to call on inner reserves to calm himself, become more aware and cooperative. Later on he told me that he hadn't been that scared of dying since Vietnam.
