Ambulance Crash[]

Frankie's Death[]

When fellow nurse, Frankie, was 28 weeks pregnant, she collapsed. Her spleen was twisted, but she refused surgery because she was worried about her baby. Her spleen started to un-twist, but then she had abdominal bleeding, so she was rushed into surgery. In surgery, the bleed was stopped, but then Frankie crashed, so they did an emergency c-section to deliver her son. After that, they tried to resuscitate her but they were unsuccessful. Richard then delivered the news of her death to Ginger and the other nurses. ("Anybody Have a Map?")


She is a nurse at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Previously, she worked at Seattle Grace Hospital.
