Hot mess can sometimes be used interchangeably with train wreck though most health care professionals admit there is a slight difference. A train wreck typically refers to a patient with a multitude of acute issues, whereas a hot mess refers to the patient itself being somewhat disorganized or chaotic. As of February 19, 2017, neither train wreck or hot mess is part of the ICD-10 code manual, but that is expected to change in the near future.
