Nurse Jackie poll: Have you ever misdiagnosed a patient?


ShowTime | YouTube + Scrubs

Nurse Jackie is back in action! Episode five of season five  – “Good Thing” – aired Sunday night. In the ep, Jackie needs the help of her friends when she finds herself nervous about her date with Frank. So Zoey and Thor help her get ready, and Eddie offers some friendly pointers.

In one of the more dramatic parts of the episode, Prentiss misdiagnoses an injured dancer. Luckily (though not always the case on Nurse Jackie), Akalitus and Coop catch his mistake before the patient leaves. In other news: Mike Cruz calls Jackie in a moment of need.

Still haven’t gotten around to kicking off season five? For a short time, Showtime will be streaming the premiere episode on their website–for free! They also have tons of fun extras on the site, including a blog and an “anatomy of Jackie” diagram that shows off all she’s been through over the course of the series.
