    There was an ER episode once where they were taking a pedi patient on the elevator somewhere (can't remember where they were going) and all of a sudden, the resident shouts "O2 sat is 89%! Prepare to intubate!!!" Yeah, I'll pay attention if the sat starts dropping, but come ON.

    I think it was Chicago Hope when the nurse dropped the donor heart which skidded across the floor and they just picked it up, rinsed it off and transplanted it anyway. Probably the ER doc who also did neuro surgery!
    We've actually done that with a cranial bone flap. We literally picked it up off the floor, soaked it in betadine, then rinsed it in bacitracin irrigation, and put it back in place.

    Has anyone seen Three Rivers? It's free on Amazon Prime Video and I have had the misfortune of stumbling upon this show. I can't even begin to list all of the ridiculous things that go on in this show. But I'll try.

    First of all there is literally like ONE nurse for the entire Hospital which is supposed to be the number one transplant hospital in the nation. And somehow the main Dr on the show is a transplant surgeon, an adult trauma surgeon, a pediatric trauma surgeon, an ER doc, and a cardiovascular surgeon. And that's only in the first few episodes so who knows what else the guy is an expert in.

    These doctors literally do everything from cleaning up vomit to wiping away patients tears to performing THE worst CPR I have ever witnessed. Like, I'm positive a toddler could do chest compressions more effectively.This show is a serious train wreck that I just. cannot. look. away. from.

    When a patient is in ICU "in a coma and on life support" and the patient is just on a nasal cannula..
    I keep going back to grey's anatomy but it's so easy lol. how about when Meredith drowns, they're doing crazy heroics to get her back to life, she's pretty darned dead and they give up bagging her even, but then miraculously her heart starts up again. ten minutes later she's talking and smiling, laughing with Cristina. and then what a few days later she's back on the floor, top of her game. yeah that happens!

    ^ that is terrible. so now when people hear DNR, instead of dying in dignity or pain free comfort care, they'll think "throw them in a corner and let them rot"

    There was an episode of Chicago Hope where the patient (a VIP of some kind) was found stone cold dead in her room, and the nurse was getting chewed out by the medical director of the hospital. He said, "Why didn't you check on this patient?" The nurse says, "This patient was a DNR, doctor, there was no order to check on her." !!!!

    When a Greys doctor goes from touching a patient with gloved hands to TOUCHING THEIR FACE with the same nasty gloves OR BETTER YET they go from touching their patient to touching/brushing their hair out of their face which should have been freaking tied back out of their face to begin with for that reason!

    Drives. Me. Nuts.

    It drives me nuts when a hysterical/out of control patient is man-handled & stuck with an exceptionally large syringe of instant sedation which causes the patient to collapse & drift into a dreamy, sleepy calm.

    And rarely an arm band/allergy band.

    As as for docs & Foleys -- I used to work in urology/oncology & as punishment for his ineptitude the brand new R1 had to put in a Foley on an elderly gentleman with BPH & bladder ca. Noooo!!! I nearly lost my poop when I asked what size sterile gloves & he insisted it was "NOT a sterile procedure". I started getting hyper & he said, "maybe it is at this hospital but not anywhere else". Uh, it's a sterile procedure EVERYWHERE!!! Little R1 had no idea what he was doing, I had to talk him through the whole thing & he was nervous/shaking but yet, still arrogant.
    Other than that, I've only seen nurses & the GU tech place catheters (unless they come from OR with one). And have only seen docs put in central lines, never a peripheral. I can see how smaller facilities would have procedure overlap though.

    There is one scene from Grey's that I recall them attempting to delineate roles and duties. It was when Dr. Yang pissed off a nurse and then she got paged to do all the bedpans.

    I laughed because that would never happen, but it is true to not piss off the nurses.

    I really enjoy watching Code Black and am looking forward to its return in the fall, but I sure wish they would put more CNAs on there. That part of the show is NOT real at all. Also, what healthcare professional cleans up the messes, Isn't it usually housekeeping? We never ever see that on TV shows either, and I believe we should if the show is going to show reality.

  • Jul 29

    When you can hear the sounds of a ventilator, but the patient only has a nasal canula.

    When there is a code, no one is bagging the patient, the patient is revived with shocks (and no IV drugs), then everyone leaves and goes back to their previous business. Patient is not intubated, or sent to ICU, and no one stays around to document, post strips, or anything.

    My husband puts the show on pause to say "okay, what would really happen?" and he is already indoctrinated to yell "that's not a shockable rhythm!" at the screen. Good times!

    It annoys me to see them drawing blood, inserting IV's, giving medications, analyzing the specimens themselves as well as doing the MRI's, CT's etc. Docs in movies and shows are cnas, nurses, MRI techs, transporters, pharmacists all in one lol.
