Love doesn't happen much on the surgical floor.
Romance is a defining characteristic of Grey’s Anatomy, but it’s definitely not a defining characteristic of most real-life hospital staffrooms. In the real world, love doesn’t happen on the surgical floor.
Steamy love affairs and scandalous romantic trysts abound on Grey’s Anatomy, but most real-life doctors keep their work lives separate from their personal lives. There may be some exceptions, but for the most part, doctors keep it professional when they’re at work and reserve romance for their time outside of the hospital.
Having romantic entanglements with colleagues can lead to awkwardness and drama, which is great for a T.V. show, but not-so-great for a real-life medical facility. For this reason, most real-life doctors uphold their professionalism while they’re at work and don’t date their colleagues—especially not while they’re literally on-the-clock!
