I have worked in the medical field, as a nurse for over 35 years and forever appalled how TV cannot portray that world accurately. Firstly this show basically shows MD's doing the bulk of caring for patients and when we do actually see a nurse they are antagonistic toward poor Shaun or seen only from a distance.
This episode had a number of errors, especially the CPR performed on the three year old ( with a child that young the compressions should be 1 hand), and we have seen the surgeons perform abdominal, vascular and now pediatric cardiac surgery. The vast majority of surgeons are not a jack of all surgeries and tend to specialize. I realize that the hospital is supposed to be a teaching hospital but the antics of the residents in training iincluding Shaun are without consequences.
I don't really know why I keep watching but I guess I'm a glutton for bad TV.
