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.

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.

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.

Dr. Meredith Grey: [About her roommates.] They're everywhere. All the time. Izzie's all perky and George does this thing where he's helpful and considerate. They share food and they say things, and they move things, and they breathe. Ugh. They're, like, happy
Dr. Cristina Yang: Kick them out.
Dr. Meredith Grey: I can't kick them out, they just moved in. I asked them to move in.
Dr. Cristina Yang: So what, you're just going to repress everything in some deep, dark, twisted place until one day you snap and you kill them?
