The MRI For A Fork In The Neck Problem
It is understandable that an issue can occur where one does not know specific hospital rules. The scrubbing in rules as well as CPR stuff can be slightly forgiven. Yet when Grey’s Anatomy pulls something idiotic out, it makes us just shake our heads in frustration. During one episode, a woman arrives with a fork in her neck. This is clearly something that is worthy of an emergency room visit. The doctors here are not certain what to do, which is a bit odd. Some want to pull it out and others want to operate around the fork. Obviously, this means they need to bring in a notable neurosurgeon for counsel!
Enter Dr. Derek Shepard, you know, from the other emergency issue involving CPR earlier. McMoron decides to take a logical approach and schedules an MRI, ideally so he can see how far the fork is in. While it does make sense to get a bigger picture of what you’re looking at here, there is a big problem with this decision. MRI machines are very powerful magnets, which would probably cause some issues with this metal fork in the patient’s neck. We’re told on Grey’s Anatomy that Dr. Shepard is a world-renowned neurosurgeon, and somehow he does not understand how MRI machines work. We threw a fork at our television out of frustration!
