==One meaning of cubicle is a bedroom. I assume, though, that this
cubicle was a misheard or misspoen term. The closest I can come is
cuticle. Perhaps in those days people could die >from infected cuticles?
I'll have to ask my wife, the family physician about what it might have
been.

Perhaps a Yiddish term?
