Patrick Dempsey... to the Rescue!

by at . Comments

When Patrick Dempsey noticed that a Grey’s Anatomy crew member looked pale, he asked him what was wrong. And it's a good thing, too.

Dempsey to the Rescue
The man said that he felt dizzy, but that he would be okay shortly. Dempsey told him that he was calling an ambulance right away. As it turned out, the staffer had a life-threatening blood clot in his leg!

When the man admitted he was woozy and couldn’t feel his legs, the man we know as Dr. McDreamy immediately had someone call for medical help, even as the crew member objected.

This isn't the first time Patrick has showcased his real-life medical skills... sort of, anyway. Back in July, he took command during a difficult situation in which his four-year-old daughter, Tallulah, was injured.

Guess playing a brilliant surgeon on television is bound to rub off sometimes!

It's a good thing Patrick did think real quick or it would of been bad for the crew member . Patrick seems to step up when it is necessary. Good for him.

I really admire Patrick Dempsey for his quick reaction when the staff member had a health problem. Dempsey did the only right thing - and it definitely looks like he has come to learn a lot of medical stuff because he's on the show. I got to experience that myself personally a while back, when watching an episode in Season 2 this week. Anyway, I hope the staff member is fine now. And Patrick Dempsey, I'm proud of you!!!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
