He doesn't have any money! One paycheck at a time, his apartment is growing in stuff. He's upgraded to a mattress on the floor and some other items.

There is an autistic Dr. on Chicago Med and there was one on Grey's. They didn't have 'Savant' syndrome though, so this is more interesting to me.

I know, I know last night he probably showed everyone he was right and lives were saved.
He is slowly wowing the staff..but in the mean time it breaks my heart...
But hey, I've never seen Titanic or The Horse Whisperer, either.

Good show, tho.
I screamed over the bunny. I literally re-wound saying 'that better be a stuffed bunny'. Then I thought well that better have been for a damn good reason. Shows and movies know we don't want to see animals hurt. It did turn out to be for a good reason, so I forgive. But I wanted to throw the father against the wall........

Is a show based on the premise that he can do no wrong really going to last? All other characters are mean and one dimensional? Donít see this being entertaining more than a half a season.

That will be the challenge for the writers, to keep the stories fresh and interesting. I don't believe that Dr. Murphy will be perfect in every episode, I also believe the "mean characters" will evolve into a more understanding and respectful medical staff when they finally realize that he's more knowledgeable than they are when it comes to saving lives.

He does do 'wrong'. He wants to run every conceivable test for anything that has the most remote possibility of being useful. He is being taught the difference.

There was nothing perfect about removing that kidney - he just did the rational, emotionless analysis that it was the best chance for long term survival, while admitting it could instead kill the woman in the immediate.

They act like this guy sprang from the head of Zeus-like Athena--total and complete
But he went though med school somewhere
Students in med school do rotations through various departments or areas of medicine before they graduate into Resident status
He HAD to have been exposed to patients in hospital situations and had to have dealt with the spectrum of what might be a necessary test or likely cause of illness...
So the idea that he has never been confronted with having to limit his expectations or horizon is just too fantastical for credibility because it totally disregards how someone actually becomes a resident--

IF he had NOT learned to do a better job and be more specific with his exams and tests, he would never have been a viable candidate to graduate...
Everyone who goes into med school does not come out with a degree--plenty of washouts...
What medical school is in his pedigree???

And regarding removing the kidney--
Was the fact she had such a large and dangerous form of cancer the reason that kidney could not be used as donor kidney for someone in dialysis???

Plus--has anyone ignored the very unrealistic way people are presented AFTER having serious surgery--
That woman was lying in her hospital bed--not in ICU--
She was not incubated--didn't seem to have any pain medication heavily sedating her after MAJOR surgery...
Same with the little girl---
I have seen people after abdominal surgery--
It is not that neat and easy...
For me---this show is about on the level of a 4th grader's understanding of medicine/surgery
I don't know if that is because the writers/show runners have such a low opinion of the public's understanding or because they are too lazy to do things in the appropriate manner

1. If you're going to share your knowledge of medicine with us, please know that the patient wasn't INCUBATED!

2. I've had kidney surgery, gall bladder surgery, and thyroid surgery. Never ended up in ICU, never was "heavily sedated" after surgery, and in all 3 cases was home within 24-36 hours of the surgery.

I actually have to correct what I had previously written. With gall bladder surgery (which included an umbilical hernia repair), I was home 4 hours later.

Lol, I had to chuckle at the original post of incubated. I nearly choked. Pun intended. Never been in ICU after surgery. No heavy sedation either. Only reason I end up in hospitals a week at a time after surgeries is because I have always managed to get infected with Staph. Different hospitals too!! Lucky me.

Or....put it back in the girl after the tumor was removed?
