‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and other Medical Dramas Donate Equipment to Frontliners Fighting COVID-19

Healthcare workers all around the world are experiencing a shortage of medical equipment necessary to protect themselves against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). In order to aid the fight against COVID-19, a handful of medical TV shows have decided to donate their on-set medical supplies to those in need.

Grey’s Anatomy and its spin-off series Station 19 have donated hundreds of masks, gowns, gloves, and other items used as on-set costuming to local hospitals and medical centers.

Station 19′s donation was sent to the Ontario Fire Department, who had been forced to reuse masks in the wake of shortage.

ABC’s The Good Doctor is similarly donating their supply of masks and medical gear to Vancouver hospitals while NBC’s New Amsterdam is sending its supply of masks, gloves, and gowns to the New York State Department of Health.

"Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping." . To the entire team @theresidentonfox, thank you for this incredibly generous donation of #PPE from your set, including gowns, masks, gloves, and all the things our healthcare workers need to provide safe care for our community during #COVID19. . Yesterday, I had a serious discussion with the residents about how, though supplies are low, a magical shipment of masks is unlikely to arrive. And yet, a magical shipment of masks DID arrive, in the form of this very generous gesture. This kind of community support means so much to our #frontlineproviders who are making many sacrifices to staff our hospitals and care for our community. . Thank you, @theresidentonfox and @foxtv for being helpers. We needed this kind of good news today. . PS: Sorry it's not a great pic, but the focus was not on the photo at the time. Similarly, the team @theresidentonfox are good citizens doing good deeds and not looking for a shout out. Though I encourage all to support The Resident and the great team behind the show and to pay their good deed forward any way you can. . #Hurstlife #residentlife #emoryIMresidents #lookforthehelpers #gratitude
