The fall finale of Grey’s Anatomy began with an apartment building collapse and Dr. Karev’s response: “Oh, we’re drinking tonight.” While some levity is necessary during tragic situations, the doctors of Seattle Grace Hospital could use a refresher course on proper hospital etiquette.
The hospital filled with injured people from the collapsed building, and the landlord of the apartment complex confessed to Dr. Warren that it was all his fault. The landlord thought he was dying and needed forgiveness. Shortly after the confession, other doctors joked that Dr. Warren should pretend to be a priest.
Later in the episode, Dr. Robbins treated a child with help from the new arrival, Dr. Minnick. The two doctors had an awkward conversation where Dr. Minnick was clearly hitting on Dr. Robbins right in front of the patient. Commingling with co-workers is bad enough, but you can’t do it right in front of a patient!
