Doctor and Lawyer React To Grey’s Anatomy Malpractice Episode

Watch the second half of this episode review on Legal Eagle’s channel here:
Legal Eagle and I went head to head last year to see which was harder, Med School or Law School. We decided to bury the hatchet this time and join our forces to react to the popular medical malpractice episode of Grey’s Anatomy, Season 10 Episode 9 “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word”. I brought my medical knowledge about a surgery gone wrong for a snowboarder who loses his legs above the knee. Devin Stone brought his legal expertise to break down what was accurate and what was fake during the trial of Dr. Callie Torres.

    My uncle died at 54 in 2012 because of a surgical good left in his chest after heart surgery. I wonder if these precautions were in place then? At least my cousins never have to work a day in their lives, and can spend a lot of time with their babies. I feel bad for the doctors and nurses involved because I do IT for medical staff now, and I know NONE of them would ever purposely hurt anyone or be negligent in any way. But the closest thing this world can offer to making someone whole again after a tragedy like that is malpractice payouts, so that's the way it is. The important thing is that hospitals are doing better now, and will continue to do better. Just as we all strive to do. =)

    If surgeon's weren't prepared to do surgeries they have never done, some of us wouldn't be alive today. I had an extremely rare condition that my surgeon was quite frank that he had never seen, that meant we delayed surgery until I had become very ill, if he hadn't operated then, I either die or need a far more major surgery.

    You know what I find odd, that an athlete becomes a double amputee and someone is pushing his wheelchair, I mean they could stage that, but putting him in a shitty wheelchair isn't realistic. I've been in court (though never with a jury) in a wheelchair multiple times, I didn't stand, but I certainly didn't comment on it!

    So, I do actually have arthritis in my hip purely due to a single injury, but it was one of the ones you mentioned, a labral tear. Delayed diagnosis was actually the issue as most of the damage occurred in the 2.5 years between injury and surgery.

THnick subtitles are on the bottom of the screen, is there anyway your editor could put the videos you display above the subtitles. And I know it's not an easy ask I have alot of respect for content creators and video editors but I know there is a huge community of people like myself who rely on subtitles :) thanks for you all you Dr Mike.

    Thank you for the smart entertainment Dr. Mike. I love learning while laughing. I love hearing from the actual professionals about these shows. I feel like I learn more as a layperson as a result. So much of our expectations are set from television and movies (unfortunately) so to hear them laugh and react to the fiction of it all is really---refreshing.

    OMG. I’m an Orthopaedic surgeon and I had to stop watching greys anatomy very early on (my wife enjoyed it for awhile). The medicine is sooooooo wrong. I know they are trying to tell a story, but non medical people think the shows are accurate. This premise is ridiculous. That’s not how this happens.

  33. Elweese


    I had 2 broken legs several years ago and the nurses and doctors drove me nuts checking on me constantly all throughout the day and night, especially the night. That they didn't know what was going on with this guys legs is unbelievable. Thankfully my doctor Dr. Gnau was fantastic in fixing my legs to the point where I have 100% use of my legs when they told me I would be lucky if I had 80%. Although part of that had to do with me taking my physical therapy very seriously as well.

    Doctor Mike- your description of how a patient is treated while inpatient postop MUST be the best case scenario, because I have had, in order: And oopherectamy, a c-section, a completely botched hysterecomy, and oops i forgot the miedical term for gall bladder removal. In 2/4 surgeries I received care the way you described it ( all the surgeries were at one of 2 hospitals) My BOTCHED (unnecessary) hysterectomy? yeah- apparently the surgeon's pride was more important than my aftercare. No one from him or his 'team' ever came in to explain what happened during the surgery that led to the ghastly outcome. After my gall bladder surgery? I woke up I guess??? too early in the recovery room and there was a nurse reading a gossip mag who told me this was all a dream and go back to sleep. I couldnt I was in agonizing pain and i was wide awake for whatever reason. I told 'my' nurse that, and also that i was freezing, and my shaking was making everything that much more painful, response? He told me to keep it down so i didnt disturb other patients. It was a total of THIRTY MINUTES before another staff member happened by and scolded the nurse and began doing whatever the correct procedure was for my situation. Since my surgery was more complicated ( for quite a few reasons) than most laporoscopic gall bladder surgeries- i was inpatient for three days. During my time there none of the nurses would even look me in the eye- like i was a snitch or something, and i heard on more than one occasion nurses 'warning' each other at shift change about me being a 'difficult patient.'Between that and the consequences of my botched hysterectomy ( I eventually learned that i had 1/2??????????????a cervix left, and a floating ovary... many complications.. massive, painful adhesions...ALL BC my surgeon had the hubris to tell me that i was a PERFECT candidate for a laporoscopic hystercetomy when in fact I saw 4 more surgeons post op who ALL agreed that was absolutely untrue.. I will never have more surgery. I dont care how serious the issue is. I never sued either because I dont believe it litigious justice. I did make formal complainta, but they all still have their jobs - nurses and surgeons. I dont know if there are any 'black marks' on their' records' butt ehy were not demoted either as far as I can tell. Perhaos your lawyer buddy would like to tell me if there is a statute of limitations with malpractice suits? NOW i regret not suing! NOT bc of $$$ but bc maybe I could have saved other, future patients from what I went through with these people. I just think you should know that Ive joined support groups for people who have been through ordeals like mine and its really not uncommon as you seem to think

    14:45 I know that a few years ago, I had an infection on the skin of my sternum, a large lump and pink lines coming off from it; the doctor didn't SAY anything in response to first seeing it, but I could see his face visibly change. (I was on horse pill antibiotics for ten days, and I have a scar from where it burst, but otherwise I was fine, with treatment. WITHOUT treatment, I'd have died.)

    I once went to a doctor as I had a really sore throat and when he looked at it he went ‘ooo that doesn’t look good’. I had very bad strep and couldn’t swallow and I have no tonsils so you can imagine how bad it was. Always remember to this day his reaction, I think my reaction was something like, yeah I know it’s bad, it’s so painful. Haha

We associate different colors with different ideas and feelings, and they can even evoke feelings in us, just by seeing them. Edit: this is about the portion where the lawyer in the show was scrutinizing the color of outfit the defendant wore.
