* BackForTheFinale: Though not a finale, the trope seemed to be enforced by season 14 with lots of beloved characters making appearances or calling in (Teddy Altman, Ellis Grey, Sofia R-S-T (and images of Mark Sloan), Matthew Taylor, Cristina Yang, Nurse Olivia, Nicole Herman, Callie Torres).

* RashomonStyle: 6x06, an after-the-fact investigation into how a patient managed to be overlooked to death. An interesting version in that the stories are almost completely consistent, just fragmented, and by the end one full narrative is pieced together.

Added DiffLines:

* HangingUpOnTheGrimReaper: When Denny returns in Izzie's hallucinations after dying, it first seems completely crazy, but maybe that she's still traumatized from his death and seeing him, especially when he says that he's "here for her"... but Izzie slowly realizes that maybe something is medically wrong, brought to a head when Denny changes his intonation slightly when repeating his new {{catchphrase}} that he's [[MeaningfulEcho "here for her"]], like Death coming to collect her. Turns out she has stage IV brain cancer, but she ultimately pulls through by getting really mad at Denny and demanding he leave (metaphorically telling Death to do one, used realistically so that her brain activity is down enough to get treated) -- he was banking on her missing him enough to not fight.

*** It's also common on the show for the doctors to defibrillate the patients several times in succession, without performing CPR in-between. You ''need'' to perform CPR between each defibrillation, or it doesn't work.

Added DiffLines:

** A surgeon can't randomly decide to pick up shifts in OB and deliver babies for a few weeks. That is an entirely different specialty, and it makes as much sense as an OB resident randomly deciding to operate for a while.
** Medical drials are always double blind, meaning that the people running the trial don't know which patients receive the medication and which patients receive the placebo. This is to prevent things like what happens at the end of season seven with the alzheimer's trial. First and foremost though, it is to ensure that the medical staff treat all patients the same way and that their bias isn't subconsciously affecting patient care.

** In addition, much of what the characters do outside the OR is actually what nurses do in real life (meanwhile the nurses on the show do little more than hand over instruments and spread STDs). The surgeons also tend to do all the internal medicine associated with their specialties, and they do most of the radiologists' work.



* TheMainCharactersDoEverything: Meredith, Derek and the rest are surgeons, yet much of what they do outside the OR is actually what nurses do in real life. They also tend to do all the internal medicine associated with their specialties, they appear to be the only doctors in the ER (it's not unrealistic for them to get paged to the ER for certain cases, but emergency medicine is its own specialty), and they do most of the radiologists' work. Oftentimes the show forgets that the chief of surgery is not in charge of the entire hospital.

* CPR and defibrillation is depicted as reviving patients back to the shape they were in before coding. In reality CPR is a violent procedure that is likely to break ribs. People who are elderly and/or have multiple underlying illnesses are unlikely to survive it. Among those who do, cerebral function can be severely compromised. One episode of the show has an old lady who goes into cardiac arrest over and over and over, each time easily revived with CPR and defibrillation, never with any negative effects. The likelihood of that happening in real life is... slim.
