Lately, times have felt like reality could really be an interesting episode of Grey’s Anatomy.
However, as the storyline goes – Grey’s Anatomy is here to the rescue, along with many other TV shows, donating medical supplies to local hospitals.
As COVID-19 cases have sky-rocketed and more and more medical supplies are being used, doctors, nurses, and first responders are put at risk, as stated by ABC News.
Unfortunately, a lack of medical supplies has delayed testing despite it being highly encouraged. This lack of supplies includes swabs and protective gear such as masks, gowns, and gloves.
Thankfully, there is full support coming from all over the country. A special shout-out to America’s favorite TV shows making a difference!
ABC’s Station 19 – According to DEADLINE, Krista Vernoff, executive producer of Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19, told Good Morning America, “At Station 19, we were lucky enough to have about 300 of the coveted N95 masks which we donated to our local fire station, they were tremendously grateful. At Grey’s Anatomy, we have a back-stock of gowns and gloves which we are donating as well. We are all overwhelmed with gratitude for our healthcare workers during this incredibly difficult time, and in addition to these donations, we are doing our part to help them by staying home.”
ABC’s Good Doctor – They are currently working with their local provincial government to determine which medical supplies they can provide.
FX’s Pose – “Today we donated all our prop supplies to Mount Sinai hospital to help nurses and doctors battling the Covid outbreak,” Pose co-creator Ryan Murphy wrote on Instagram, as mentioned by DEADLINE.
NBC’s New Amsterdam – Half a truck load of PPE, masks, gloves, gowns, and face masks was delivered to the New York State Department of Health in order to help hospitals with supplies.
FOX’s The Resident – They were able to donate personal protective equipment to Atlanta’s Grady Memorial Hospital in the city where the series is filmed.
It’s great to see all these amazing heroes coming together to save a life not only on camera, but off camera as well!
A huge THANK YOU to the heroes contributing to donating medical supplies and moving the testing process along.
