Doctor and Lawyer React To Grey’s Anatomy Malpractice Episode

Publicerades den 2 maj 2021
Watch the second half of this episode review on Legal Eagle’s channel here:
Legal Eagle and I went head to head last year to see which was harder, Med School or Law School. We decided to bury the hatchet this time and join our forces to react to the popular medical malpractice episode of Grey’s Anatomy, Season 10 Episode 9 “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word”. I brought my medical knowledge about a surgery gone wrong for a snowboarder who loses his legs above the knee. Devin Stone brought his legal expertise to break down what was accurate and what was fake during the trial of Dr. Callie Torres.

  • The sponge was wrongfully accused! #spongejustice #justiceforthesponge

    • I will tell you a reason's why You get a bad feeling You get sus about it AMONGOS

    • More of these collaboration please!

    • Will Sponge get any restitution??

    • @Adison Landon I get that reference! 😄

    • Kindly make a video on topic- As a medical student how can we protect our family and have some drugs handy at home or any other measures with which we can help our parents and neighbours in this corona time. And should we have an oxygen concentrator at home for ourselves and people around us if they need it?

  • i just LOVE the chemistry between them. how they both feed off each others' energy and how they both learn off each others' professional knowledge. please collab more!

  • I absolutely LOVE the Legal Eagle and Dr. Mike Collaborations! If I ever need a lawyer, I sure hope he's taking new clients b/c I'd be calling him!!!


  • I can’t stop laughing at the lawyer yelling “why is no one checking on him???”

  • You should do the House MD medical malpractice episode. :)

  • The lawyer looks like if doctor Mike aged a little more

  • They look like older and younger versions of each other

  • For a surgery like this, would all the research be done by one surgeon (like in this episode), or would there be a team. Also I would think that a team should have made this decision, not just one doctor. Anyone know how these things happen in real life? Team work Vs single person decisions..

  • Definitely need to see more of you two together. Awesome episode guys!

  • Oh no, two of the hottest dudes in one video

  • YO! DR.MIKE! Could you react to the resident please? Thought you might like it!?

  • How is it her fault if his heart has an infection? She was only fixing his hip

  • Power couple

  • ok he needs to explain how the musicians do that because OMG.

  • this was an awesome collab.. I love Legal Eagle's channel too.. both amazing

  • 18:52 that was actually a really cool fact. That blew my mind

  • @Dr Mike I would love if you could do a review of season 3 episode 1 (Silence and Suffering) of "The Fall" TV Series with Gillian Anderson! I love that show and the emergency operation was so detailed and seemed precise, would be very curious to see your review on this!!!

  • Mike: SHE'S GUILTY! eagle: liable Mike: SHE'S LIABLE!

  • This thumbnail looks like the beginning of a joke

  • I’m just waiting for your artery to burst my dude

  • These two men look so fine that I'm flustered and annoyed at the same time.

  • This was extremely informative and enjoyable. I love two domain experts learning from each other.

  • All that to show what we already know: Grey's Anatomy is the least realistic medical tv show ever!

  • My man legal eagle!!!!

  • This is my favorite duo on SEnewss.Their Law School vs Med School video was also great, check it out if you guys haven't yet.

  • Doctor mike...❤❤❤

  • Hey Dr. Mike, you should collab with Steveioe, the guy who calls us MF all the time. Very nice guy.

  • Happy to have legal eagle here


  • We NEED more of you two together!!

  • More of these collabs!

  • This is brilliant! I love both your shows - what a fantastic crossover team up! Would love to see more of these in the future.

  • What a great collab! More of these would be great!

  • Every episode I watch my dad says he would never let those doctors touch him 🤣

  • 0:44 LegalEagle, it's "service of process," not "process of service."

  • Every single episode of House can probably end up in a malpractice lawsuit.


  • Lawyers fix it; Dr. Mike reaction is priceless!

  • The sponge with the string made me cringe so hard!! Ahhhh!! but loving this collaboration

  • The crossover I didnt know I needed.

  • Dr Mike saying “got it” like he’s preparing for his own case

  • the hand thing sounds like dereks dude saying he will be able to operate at 100% mobilty after the plane crash

  • McDoc and McLaywer

  • Can you do a M*A*S*H EPISODE PLEASE??

  • Uniting the world of my boy Mr Stone and my wife's favourite Dr Mike!

  • This was fantastic! Make these collabs quarterly!

  • u know nurses exist in the show, right? 😭

  • Dr. Mike's reaction @0:35 🤣🤣🤣

  • Dr. Mike, there’s a Korean medical show called Hospital Playlist on Netflix and the first episode alone goes through a lot lol 😂 Also private practice on Amazon Prime plssss


  • After a shitty week that involved 4 days in the hospital and going to court this is oddly relaxing. Btw, I got robbed, but I’m fine for the most part.

  • A quick comment about one hard crash causing arthritis: I don't think it was arthritis that did him in, but Bo Jackson's athletic career was pretty much taken away because he landed on his hip during a what looked like a routine, simple tackle. Just a freak accident is what it was.

  • "Only one proper colour for a shirt which is white" bro they got shirt racism now

  • More of this type of content would be amazing. Love the collabarations. Here because of the legal eagles channel!

  • I have no interest in medicine, law, or Greys Anatomy yet here I am

  • You honestly kinda sound like Dr. Shepherd 😳

  • I really want to see a breakdown of the show “Boston legal”

  • Well...what happens to the doctor.. did she get sued?!?!

  • I was just waiting for this

  • Please dr mike react to S16Epi 3 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽

  • This is cringe

  • So cool! More of this please.

  • Not him initially guessing Jo was a nurse because she's a woman 💀

  • They should do this for Ted 2 LOL

  • This is the most unexpected crossover and I am living for it

  • Hey Doctor Mike have you reviewed the episode of grey's anatomy where Meredith is taken to a board and they are trying to revoke her medical license? I'd like to see that :)

  • When two professionals review the episode of drama that combine both professions 😁👍 is there anything get better?

  • One of the best videos I have watched on this channel for sure. Thank you.

  • I want to become a lawyer and make a youtube channel where I call my fans the Legal Beagles just to challenge the Legal Eagles

  • last week on monday i got my blood taken for a bloodtest. While doing so after putting the needle in i stoped feeling my arm like it was all tingly and my arm is still bruised till today like blue green aspots... and my doctor said she can do nothing... cool cause i cant do either i cant use my arm 100% normaly without feeling pain is that a case of malpractice? (ps: i found out the assistant who took my blood hasnt finished her exams yet and is not allowed to draw blood)

  • The crossover we’ve all been waiting for

  • Being a hospital doctor must be the most stressful career anyone could pursue.

  • This was so interesting and I felt your frustration

  • Marvel has the best crossovers.... Then... **This exists**

  • Frankly, this is a collaboration I can truly get behind. I hope there's an opportunity in the future for more!

  • The ultimate bromance

  • The issue of the arterial clot causing acute limb ischemia is pretty easily explained given that he has endocarditis. Sounds like septic emboli. Alternatively, you can see similar presentations of both venous and arterial thrombotic clots in DIC secondary to sepsis.

  • They say that Endgame is the most ambitious crossover of all time. They're wrong.

  • Civil War is the most ambitious crossover ever ma-

  • oh woww

  • LOL this is great. My wife a nurse I always hear her making comments about Medical shows. Bringing in a lawyer just takes that into another level. lol

  • This is a collab that I didn't know was needed. You guys did great .

  • I didn’t know what they’re constantly doing on Greys Anatomy was not only wrong but also very illegal until College.🤦🏽‍♀️

  • "patients treat healthcare like their shopping" hmmm, I wonder why...

  • He never went home with a fever, he went home fine and was brought in two weeks later with a fever.

  • Doctor mike I love you but I know your greedy ass isn’t a FAMOUS DOCTOR and selling sweat shirts for $50 dollars... I mean I’d literally floss my teeth with your butthole hairs but come on man.

  • As a phlebotomist when you said " patients think its like , "I want X " when in reality its not in their best interest". I get patients with pipelines in their antecubital but want a butterfly needle in the back of their hand with thin and and swirmy veins, who then complain about bruising or a hematoma. lol but as a masters of biomedical science student its funny to know this will stay with me in the future as a doctor lol .

  • great collab, thanks!

  • My doctor said I would be perfectly fine after my femur break didn’t happen nerve damage that he acted like was my fault and couple other problems

  • This ep always bothered me when I watched it, so much happened that seemed super shady. So, thank you both for covering it.

  • The rep in the surgery room thing reminds me of season 2 of The Resident... Maybe you could look into that?

  • My two favorite professionals in the same video! I love it :D

  • Collab with Psychology in Seattle!!!

  • These guys would make a seriously potent team in the courtroom. I’d say the doctors office as well, but I’m not sure Legal Eagle could provide much outside from strategies to mitigate potential legal issues....

  • Collab video

  • OK Dr Mike I normally agree with most of what you have to say but imma have to call you on this one. First off this episode has many flashbacks so it happened over the course of months because if y'all were paying attention it starts with Torres married and when she's in court she's separated from her wife. Secondly the patient was a former pt of Dr Yang when she did a valve replacement on him. Dr Torres didn't want to use the valve because it wasn't even approved on the market yet so no help in the OR from the company because it was still in trial phases but she tried for it anyway and made sure he knew it would be her first time. Thirdly the patient was crashing during surgery so she had to weigh leaving the sponge and potential infection or him dying on the table. Fourthly the pt went home fine with no signs of infection but when she saw him again it's cause he waited 2 weeks to come back and had let the infection continue as you well know hard headed patients can easily do. Fifthly your experience seems to be limited to teaching hospitals with giddy and anxious interns and residents constantly watching patients but that is not the case in every hospital in the regular world. I live in Houston, one of largest cities in the US and have worked for teaching and non teaching hospitals and in neither environment will the doctors be doing neuro checks, monitoring vital signs and physically assessing the patient multiple times a day after a hip surgery -- that's our job as the nurses to do and you bet your fine booty that the nurse would have found that leg cold before it got that bad as that patient would have went through the ER been given a sepsis protocol and probably put in ICU or at least IMCU where nurses would be monitoring him. Unfortunately Grey's doesn't like to show how things really work but in most hospitals after surgery the surgeon will stop by maybe once or twice unless something happens otherwise the patients care is mainly given over to the attending doctor and any consults (like in this patients case cardiology) the patient typically doesn't follow up with the surgeon in their office until at least 2 weeks sometimes up to 6 weeks later depending on what surgery they had. This patient obviously didn't care for the incision site or monitor it nor did his fiance until it was very far gone it didn't get that way overnight.

  • One of my favourite episode of GREY'S ANATOMY

  • Doctor Mike AND Legal Eagle? My ovaries just exploded...and I’m a guy.

  • Aren’t post-surgical wounds re-dressed frequently?
