The Grey’s Anatomy Hangover Cure
We all know Meredith Grey is an alcoholic by the way she seems to consume booze quite often. Therefore, when she showed up to work hungover in Episode Six of Season Two, this was a huge problem. She was ready to go into surgery or see patients, but she was caught before that and put into a room with a “banana bag.” This is a yellow IV drip with fluid that is filled with vitamins and electrolytes. While this would potentially be helpful to people, it does not treat a hangover in any way. Of course, there are many “hangover cures” that people swear by.
However, the only real “cure” that we’re certain of is simply waiting for it to pass. It is best to drink a lot of water and only water, if at all possible. Some even claim having foods like steak, eggs, etc. can be helpful. It is thought that food can be somewhat helpful, but the exact food is suspect really. The best thing Dr. Grey could have done here was stay home. Showing up to work drunk or hungover is sometimes an instantly firable offense, depending on the hospital. Other times, it could be a suspension if nothing else. Grey was just given an IV bag and eventually went back to work.
