Correction: His name is Dr Robert Chase. So calling him Robert is simply using his first name. The actor's name in real life is Jesse Spencer.

Corrected entry: In House M.D. season 7 titled "Now What?" They are looking for a neurosurgeon to replace the one that is sick. Foreman is a neurologist who would have studied neurosurgery, but they took the whole episode looking for a neurosurgeon.

Correction: Studying neurosurgery as part of neurology does not make one a qualified neurosurgeon. Foreman would undoubtedly be familiar with the basic practices involved, but he would by no means be qualified to take on that role.

Corrected entry: In the episode "Daddy's Boy", it is stated that a patient of House's collapsed while attending a frat party at Princeton University. However, Princeton does not have any fraternities or sororities.

Correction: There are still fraternity parties at Princeton as the fraternities are "underground" and the students still refer to the parties they hold as frat parties. The school does not officially recognize or sanction them, but they do exist.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Several times throughout the show, notably in episode 12 of season 4, there is a wheelchair in the room with the MRI machine. MRI machines use very powerful magnets with strong magnetic fields: a chair with that much metal would almost certainly get sucked into the machine or at the very least pose a danger of getting sucked in and harming the patient. MRI machines are always kept on (it can costs thousands to turn them off and on), so it's not like they wheeled her in and then moved the chair before turning it on. You can watch a video of what happens when chairs get too close and how strong the magnets in these machines really are here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=4uzJPpC4Wuk.

Correction: Non-ferrous metals are not attracted by magnets. The wheelchair could be made out of any non-ferrous metal.

Corrected entry: Cameron, Chase and Foreman frequently perform MRIs, CAT scans and regular x-rays. In order to do that you need to be a radiologist, which none of them is.

Correction: When you go to med school, most of the time you are taught HOW to do these procedures, you just don't do them usually. Doesn't mean they don't know how not to. Besides most of these test are done by radiology TECHNICIANS nowadays (with only a few months of schooling sometimes.)

Corrected entry: Chase, Foreman and Wilson wear ties almost all the time. Any doctor working with infecteous diseases knows that ties are huge bacteria herds and that doctors should absolutely not wear them. In fact, most hospitals forbid their doctors to wear ties. While some doctors may not know this, Chase, Foreman and Wilson work closely with House, who is an expert on the subject and would most definitely know about it.

Correction: Just because they know it shouldn't be there does not make it a mistake. I am a paramedic and I can tell you a LOT of things occur that we know SHOULDN'T happen. And I know MD's and RN's with ties, and long finger nails and long hair (unbound) all the time.

Corrected entry: At the end of the Season 3 premiere, House breaks into Wilson's office and writes himself a prescription for Vicodin with Wilson's prescription pad. Vicodin is a Schedule III controlled substance, which means that a pharmacist requires verbal authorization from the prescribing doctor or his staff to dispense it to a patient, even another doctor, making the prescription useless to House, which he should know.

Correction: Actually, it isn't often verified (scary, I know). I am a paramedic and work at a hospital and no one ever questions the ER docs who write narcotic prescriptions. They simply verify that it is an actual doctor.

Trivia

Hugh Laurie auditioned for the role as Dr. Gregory House in his hotel room bathroom in Namibia. He was rehearsing his role for the film The Flight of the Phoenix and claimed that the bathroom was the only place with enough light. He also apologized for his appearance on tape before the audition as he'd just come back from filming. The fact that House has a somewhat scruffy and unkempt look, particularly his constant five o'clock shadow, has been attributed by creator David Shore to Laurie's appearance in this audition tape.
