    One baby died. The mom started to leave AMA but Mer stopped her.

    The first thought that popped into my head when he said that was Kermit the Frog.

    Seriously though, I was a bit taken aback by that comment too. I don't think all doctors have stories like that. Derek made it sound like killing a patient was a right of passage or something, and I thought it was inappropriate.

    You guys are funny with your Jim Henson references.

    I agree that Derek's delivery of the information was a little stilted last night and made it come off as a tad inappropriate. But I think, unfortunately, that doctors and residents that work in ICU have to make quick decisions that sometimes turn out to be the wrong ones. I would think that losing a patient is, in fact, a right of passage that doctors and residents do have to overcome (nice analogy, Marleybone) in order to proceed over that emotional hurdle. I would have liked the line to have been delivered a tad more emotionally... but I liked it that Derek was trying to reassure Alex that he wasn't alone. But maybe I'm muddying the waters between "losing a patient" and "killing a patient."

    I may have missed a detail, but... does Derek know that Alex failed his exams?
    Never let the things you want make you forget about the things you have.

    I don't think he knows. I think the Chief would have kept that a secret from the other doctors and interns.

    I agree that it is the difference between "losing a patient" and "killing a patient." I think he wanted him to realize that making a mistake does "kill" and though they don't mean to, the responsibility needs to be taken seriously and accepted and the doctor needs to move forward, learn from it, and hopefully be better next time. He was teaching him in that sense.

    But hey, Meredith does have a revolving bedroom door. I'm surprised she doesn't have one of those customer service signs over her bed. "Now serving number 30."

    Well said, and no I don't think you are "muddying the waters". There is a huge difference between "losing" and "killing". I think Derek could have said that differently, but I think you are right that he was trying to convey to Alex that he's not the only one who has been in that boat.

    In this litigious, real world, I don't think a doctor would stand around and say they "killed" a patient. You never know who might hear you.

    As for Alex, as far as I know nobody except the Chief knows that he failed his boards, and I'm thinking he may have told Meredith when they were sitting together at the hospital on Thanksgiving.

    Alex did tell Meredith that day and she told him he should talk to Izzie about it but he said he couldn't because she's act to undertanding or something like that.

    I wish Dr. Shepherd had phrased it differently, because "killing" a patient is different from "losing" one. That's a definite cause for concern.

    Maybe Derek used the word "killed" instead of "lost" or "losing" to make Alex realize the severity of his mistake. Just a thought.
