Patrick Dempsey... to the Rescue!

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!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
