Hospital Gear from sets of TV Medical Dramas Donated to First Responders Amid Coronavirus Pandemic


  • TV dramas Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Doctor, and The Resident donated medical supplies to hospitals fighting coronavirus.
  • TV show Station 19 also donated supplies from the set to the Ontario Fire Department.
  • Medical supplies at hospitals have been running low due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Popular medical drama shows in television donated medical supplies from their sets to hospitals and firefighters following the shortage caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Ontario Fire Department shared in Instagram a picture of firefighters holding boxes of protective face masks donated by TV drama Station 19 earlier this week:

 

“At Station 19, we were lucky enough to have about 300 of the coveted N95 masks, which we donated to our local fire station,” showrunner Krista Vernoff said in a statement to TV Guide.

The production crew of Grey’s Anatomy also donated medical supplies to hospitals in Los Angeles.

She added, “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.”

The film set of The Good Doctor partnered with officials from the local government of Vancouver in its plan to donate an undisclosed amount of medical supplies to hospitals and organizations whose supplies have been depleted.

TV show The Resident, which is based in Atlanta, donated unused gloves, gowns, and face masks to the Grady Memorial Hospital.

Rheumatologist Dr. Karen Law from the hospital wrote on Instagram to express their thanks to the television crew that donated the much-needed medical supplies. The post has now been shared hundreds of times.

“Yesterday, I had a serious discussion with the residents about how, though supplies are low, a magical shipment of masks is unlikely to arrive,” she wrote. “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, [The Resident] and [Fox TV] for being helpers. We needed this kind of good news today,” she stated.
