Does the name Bokhee ring a bell? After 11 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy it’s time to meet the scrub nurse who has seen it all!
Meredith Grey, Derek Shepherd, Richard Webber, Alex Karev, Amelia Shepherd, Miranda Bailey, all of these prominent surgeons would not be where they are in season 11 without one important person– Bokhee. The silent, but ever present scrub nurse is the glue that holds the entire surgical team together.
From the moment Meredith slipped her hand into the chest cavity of a man carrying an active bomb, Bokhee has stuck by the men and women in the OR of Seattle Grace. Speaking of the hospital formally known as Seattle Grace, Bokhee has also survived a series of firings, hirings, nurses strikes, and other personnel changes. Bokhee’s employment was never at stake. In fact, you’d forget she was there if you weren’t paying close attention.
She does not say much, but her eyes and ears know a great deal more than the mouth behind her mask lets on. Bokhee has said “Doctor” on one occasion, and knows each surgeons favorite routines in the OR, including putting on some tunes and going with the flow.
You go, Bokhee!
She is the go-to scrub nurse for all major operations, including Amelia Shepherd’s career defining moment this season as she removed the monster tumor from Nicole Herman’s brain. Why is she so great at her job? Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that when she is not filming episodes of Grey’s Anatomy she is assisting surgeons in a real OR as a scrub nurse. That’s right, Bokhee is a professional scrub nurse when she is not moonlighting as an actress playing one!
You can bet that no matter how crazy the surgeries seem over the years of Grey’s Anatomy that the doctors are being handed the correct instruments they ask for in the fake OR. For all the she doesn’t say, Bokhee’s presence is still a relief when the going gets tough.
If we could have lunch with any professional from Grey Sloan Memorial, Bokhee is the first person we’d call.
