9 wicks, 3 inbounds, and not a lot of examples either (six total, two of which aren't an example, and three more are X, Just...X). Frankly, this feels like it was rushed through YKTTW without being fully complete.
Let's try to Guess The Trope. Grey's Anatomy has a lot of medical emergencies on it; which one in particular do you think the trope name refers to? And of course this tends to happen in any show that has a hospital, not just Grey's Anatomy either. The name really doesn't tell us what the trope means: the EMR part is not specific enough, and the show name in there simply doesn't add anything.
So anyway, I do think this is a trope, but I also think this should be sent back to YKTTW. What do you think?
I don't have the vaguest guess what the trope could be based on the name. What I know about Grey's Anatomy from hearing about it but never watching it is that it's more romance-soap opera than medical drama. SO I would guess that the Grey's Anatomy Emergency Medical Response would be "Someone who is injured sparks the doctors having a relationship-drama session."
Nope. Not even close. But the thing is a trope.
Back to YKTTW with it.

...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.
I'm going to do something I rarely do in public, and admit that I used to watch the show in question. (I got better.) Maddy's assessment matches my own. Back to YKTTW with this, and don't let it return until it has at least a vaguely indicative name.

Speaking words of fandom: let it squee, let it squee.
That's Fast Eddie's unlauncher button, and I don't know if it works for tropes that haven't been launched recently.

But even if you can do it, who's going to sponsor it? Someone needs to take care of it on behalf of TRS. We can't just toss a trope randomly in YKTTW and expect someone to just pick it up, while the thread takes up space.

What goes around, comes around what goes up, must come down
1. Copy the contents into a YKTTW, modifying where necessary. 2. Put a link to this TRS thread on the discussion page. 3. Cutlist the page with the explanation that it's going back to YKTTW by TRS decision. 4. Link the YKTTW here.
Looks like this was created by Blue Chameleon in June of last year. Reading the first line of that first revision, there is a part of me that wonders whether it was a malformed launch of a YKTTW, but that would probably be impossible to track down.
I got beaten to it, but this is what I see:
The trope should be about doctors and other medical personnel overreacting to everything. Including: Minor Injury Overreaction, Everyone goes to a new patient, way too many tests performed,etc. As is, the trope is too narrowly defined. My ideas:
Rename the trope to something general
Edit the article, so it's more broadly defined (as is, the article describes 1 example of this)
Assuming you're right, the trope name is still too specific. Also, there are only 6 examples on the page, and most of them are basically "it happens a lot on show ______". Expanding the definition will help.
Alternative Titles: Greys Anatomy Response

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
