That is not one thing you see on daily basis.

Whereas far too many exhibits deal with psychological well being as a joke or depict exaggerated, flashy illnesses, Chicago Med Season 8 Episode 5 took on the truth of psychiatric care in emergency rooms.

As an alternative of being the same old thorn in Charles’ facet, Cuevas was pissed off as she tried in useless to get a mattress for a affected person, whereas one other one developed points due to an issue with the medical transport van. This was an essential story; kudos to the Med writers for addressing it.

In some ways, Eleanor was symbolic of the issues within the system.

This candy lady appeared to have been forgotten; she saved being shuffled from one room to a different whereas continually complaining that she needed to go dwelling. By the point the van arrived, she was so bodily and mentally drained she misplaced her mood and ended up within the psych ward.

Cuevas was proper: this could by no means have occurred. The van service was backed up like all the pieces else on the hospital, however there has to have been a greater method to take care of sufferers who wanted rides.

This most likely would not be an choice in actual life, however I used to be shocked that not one of the docs supplied to drive the lady dwelling. She’d been ready hours, had not eaten or taken her meds, and was taking on house different sufferers wanted.

The hospital was probably liable if she turned severely unwell due to the lengthy delay; should not somebody at the very least have ensured she bought her meds whereas ready?

In the meantime, Charles and Cuevas had a tough time serving to their assigned affected person due to overcrowding within the psych ward.

Beds had been elusive, each earlier than and after they came upon what was happening with Harris.

There have been some holes on this story. We by no means came upon why Harris left, the place he went, or why he returned. It additionally wasn’t clear why he initially did not keep in mind his title or the place he lived.

These particulars had been considerably irrelevant. If Harris had gotten the mattress he wanted immediately, the docs might have handled him extra successfully. He may not have left the hospital if that had occurred, both.

As an alternative, by the point he returned, Eleanor had gotten his mattress. Maggie has no room for him, however he has no place to go; he’ll most likely be caught within the ED till a mattress opens up if one does.

No marvel Cuevas was disgusted with the entire observe of psychiatry! It will need to have felt like wasted effort to attempt to assist anybody below these situations.

Marcel’s story was most likely meant to point out the continued impact of provide chain points on everybody within the hospital. Nevertheless, Sharon’s answer was goofy.

Marcel: The factor is, if we move on these lungs, we do not assume we’ll get one other pair on time.
Dayton: So intricate equipment, ticking clock, and a life at stake.

Whereas Dayton is a prime engineer, it wasn’t plausible that he might shortly construct a working machine out of random elements to interchange the one the hospital did not have entry to. This suffered from the identical downside as the unique prepare crash story: unrealistic options involving docs utilizing family objects to save lots of lives.

I like MacGyver as a lot as the following particular person, however not on my medical dramas! I hated it on Royal Pains and prefer it even much less on Med, which is a extra severe drama.

I am shocked this concept even handed the authorized workforce’s assessment. Peter is usually overly involved in regards to the hospital’s legal responsibility; utilizing a patient-built machine to restore the donated lungs ought to have raised main pink flags!

Possibly he was too busy worrying about what was happening with Will and Vanessa.

Even when Devon hadn’t proven up within the hospital — a risk Vanessa ought to have seen coming when she recommended getting meds from him — somebody would have came upon finally. Will and Vanessa saved whispering about it out within the open; when Doris got here down the corridor, I believed she would overhear the entire thing.

As soon as the cat was out of the bag, it wrapped up awfully shortly. Chicago PD declined to press prices, and Sharon instructed the 2 to provide her a heads-up subsequent time they get hold of medicine illegally for his or her sufferers.

That appeared like a gentle response. In fact, it could have been odd if Will bought into bother weeks after testifying towards a shady physician engaged in different underhanded practices. Possibly that was why Sharon was so lenient.

Maggie wasn’t, however she had the incorrect thought. Vanessa recommended this to Will, not the opposite means round.

Whereas it is comprehensible that Maggie desires to assume the perfect of her daughter, she additionally is aware of that Vanessa took pace lower than a 12 months in the past. She ought to have realized that Vanessa leaned on the identical one who bought her these medication!

By the way, what occurred to Grant? After Maggie instructed Ben the reality about who Grant was, he vanished and has not been seen since.

April was again for a go to! After Choi bumped into her on Chicago Med Season 8 Episode 1, I knew she’d be again once more in the end.

April is at her greatest when coping with sufferers moderately than Choi drama. These two are much better off as colleagues than lovers.

Hey, I am actually sorry for the sneak assault. I simply thought that reuniting within the remedy room would have been awkward. Which it was.


April is not conscious that Choi has modified because the capturing. She was proper that the previous Choi would have turned Brock in with out pondering twice; he as soon as ruined a girl’s life by telling the Military she was utilizing an unauthorized prosthetic.

This new, extra cheap Choi is much more likable. Too unhealthy it took till Brian Tee’s last few episodes for Choi to grow to be somebody I will miss!
