Grey's Anatomy

Throwing It All Away - S10-E15

Factual error: In the opening scenes, Arizona mistakenly says a child suffering from eminent liver failure is at risk for psoriasis, when the script called for the word cirrhosis. Psoriasis is a skin disease. Cirrhosis is the medical term for end stage liver disease.

Drowning on Dry Land - S3-E16

Factual error: Derek performs CPR on Meredith in the back of the ambulance, but he does so incorrectly. He gives one breath and five compressions instead of two and thirty. Also, drowning victims need oxygen, and Derek should have used a BVM to ventilate Meredith, not mouth to mouth. Any doctor would have known how to provide proper treatment.

Break on Through - S2-E16

Factual error: Izzie tells her patient, Cheyenne and her mother, Mrs. Ward that they live in the same town she grew up in - Chehalis, Washington, yet mispronounces it. She says CH-halis (like CHurch) when it is SH-halis like Chinook Salmon.

Dr. Meredith Grey: At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out. They fence you in. Life is messy. That's how we're made. So, you can waste your lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross.
