Hospitals have been facing a shortage of medical supplies to treat COVID-19 patients, and thankfully help came this week, albeit from an unlikely source. Television medical dramas like The Resident, Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Doctor, and Station 19 have been donating the medical supplies used in their productions to hospitals and fire stations.
In a statement, showrunner Krista Vernoff said, “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 backstock 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.”
