M*A*S*H

Check-Up - S3-E7

Corrected entry: When Hawkeye takes Lt. Hoolihan's blood pressure, he attaches the cuff below her elbow. Blood pressure cuffs must go above the elbow.

Correction: I haven't seen the episode, but a blood pressure cuff does not need to be above the elbow, it just needs to be over an artery, any artery close enough to the surface to get a reading. Often, if the arms are too large, or if there are problems with the upper arm, a cuff may be placed below the elbow, around the wrist, even on legs if there is no other place, though that doesn't happen very often.

Mistakes

Hawkeye calls a number of people into the mess tent over the PA - the ones he allegedly suspects of being behind the thefts he is suspected of himself. Interestingly enough, Ho Jon, later revealed to be the guilty party, is not on Hawkeye's list - yet he shows up uninvited, just to be ensnared by Hawk's clever ploy. Note also that he had no way of knowing what the purpose of the meeting was, so we cannot ascribe to him the motive of wanting to find out how much Hawkeye knew.
